10.26.2009 / This Week is an Off Week, But Then it is Time to Tame the Tigers. Posting by Greg Sharpe, Voice of the Huskers

What a night Saturday was for Nebraska Football. The weather was beautiful and the game...well 55-0 was just what the Huskers needed after heartbreak from the week before.

"Conference play starts next Thursday with Missouri in a critical Big 12 North battle."

I hope the fans enjoyed the celebration that took place Saturday. Video tributes from former players and coaches and even Barry Switzer, the former Oklahoma coach, offered up their praise of the Nebraska fan base.

As far as the game goes the Huskers flexed their muscles and shut out an opponent for the first time in three years. It was also the first time since 2003 (when Bo was the Huskers defensive coordinator) that Nebraska has held four straight opponents to under 20 points. 

Because of the lopsided score the coaches were able to play most of the players. Did you catch the fantastic run by Rex Burkhead? All in all a wonderful night for Cornhusker fans, players and coaches. But now, in some ways, the season begins. Conference play starts next Thursday with Missouri in a critical Big 12 North battle. More on that game as we get closer to October the 8th.

As for the tigers I hope NU can tame them. It's going to be a good game especially since it's in Mizzou and on a Thursday night. Blaine Gabbert looked really good against Nevada last week and his pass completion rate was not bad either. I just hope the Huskers can pull out a WIN! I think the key is going to be Nebraska needs to score touchtowns in the Red Zone. Does anyone agree with me ???

Nice job beating up on lowly LL! Times are changing and the Big 12 is no longer the dominant conference it was over the past couple of years - which can only help NU's BCS chances. There seems to be more parity than ever in college football (once you get past the big boys in the SEC). Michigan Iowa in 2 weeks is the game to watch!

I agree with you Husker Gal. I think Nebraska needs to show that they can actually score more than a field goal in the red zone against a ranked team. It's going to be a great game I just hope the Huskers can pull off a win.
