09.24.2010 / One more game and the farewell tour of the Big 12 begins. Posting by Greg Sharpe, The Voice of the Huskers.

This past weekend the Nebraska Cornhuskers reserved themselves a seat at the BCS table. With their convincing 56 to 21 win over the Washington Huskies, the Big Red have put themselves in a position to be in the challenge for the national title.

"The Big Red have put themselves in a position to be in the challenge for the national title."

I’m not saying that NU will be in Arizona in early January prepping for the national title contest, but after three weeks there are about eight schools that can seriously make a case and the Huskers are one of them. Taylor Martinez has turned NU’s offense into a unit that has respect around the nation and we all know that the Blackshirts under Bo Pelini have already done the same. Martinez’s numbers have been eye popping through the first three weeks and the talking heads at ESPN and Fox are all talking about number three.

This week South Dakota State comes to town and the Jackrabbits are 0-2 and staring at the 6th ranked team in the country in Nebraska. This week will be about getting better for NU. The Huskers will be a huge favorite against this FCS school. You can expect a bunch of players getting on the field Saturday for the Big Red which is always beneficial for the younger players on the squad.

Enjoy what should be another beautiful Nebraska Saturday and keep in mind that after this one the farewell tour of the Big 12 is up next.

Go Big Red!
