    Of the six games announced today, Nebraska is in two of them, Ohio State three, Penn State two.

    Hey @NateClouse over/under on recruits for the Miami prime time game? My guess is 10 official visitors if not more.

    Good to see some night games. Miami at home has the potential to be really big. We've lost 4 of our 6 "marquee" non-conference games under Pelini (lost to VT twice, beat Washington twice, lost to UCLA twice), so it would be nice to make a statement. It's certainly not a make-or-break game, but it's important. With a win over Miami, the Huskers would likely be 5-0 heading into a big showdown with MSU on the road.

    If Nebraska manages to start the season 6-0, there's a good chance we'll find our way into the top 10.

    ESPN GameDay in Lincoln or East Lansing? It's possible.

    I mentioned in a thread a week or two ago about night games that I thought the Miami and MSU games were real possibilities. The Wisconsin game may be too late in the season for the B1G to allow at night.

    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    It will be interesting to see if both (or neither, or either) team is undefeated heading into the NU-Miami matchup. A loss by either likely leaves them unranked heading into the anticipated showdown. And I suppose neither team is a lock to be in the preseason top 25 (though I think it's a bit more likely the case with Miami being left out).

    Miami plays @Louisville first game of the season. Certainly not an easy chore for the Canes.

    Nebraska plays @Fresno the week prior to Miami (better not look ahead). That game, as I mentioned quite awhile ago, seems far from a guaranteed win (even with Fresno being without Carr).

    Regardless, it will be very cool to see NU-Miami in Lincoln ... in primetime. I hope both teams are undefeated heading into the matchup.

    Gotta beat Miami at home. No reason we can't. This team is experienced enough to perform well that early. If we don't though, my expectation for making the CCG certainly would go down.

    Great that it will be a night game. A strong victory would make a statement that we are very close to being ready to make.

    Go Big Red!!!

    They just need to be over by 9pm..
    I'm not this pretty from staying up all hours of the night


    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    yeah, I hate it when the game is over but there is still more than a quarter to play.

    I would bet the over, but many of them will already be committed to Nebraska. Who wouldn't want to be at that game?

    Also, by that game we may only have a few spots left.

    2 guaranteed losses for NU now, prime time night games are Pelini's kryptonite.

    Let me tell you how surprised I am to see you emerge from under your bridge to crap in a thread where people are excited and happy about something Husker related.
