This team has heart, doesn’t quit, and has a 6-0 start for the first time since 2001. Even with a banged up squad, they gutted out a win against a feisty Indiana squad, and are one a roll. The Huskers are 9-1 since last year’s game against Purdue, and look to get revenge this week as the Boilermakers head to Lincoln. Kickoff is at 3:30, so come early, grab a seat, and help us cheer on Nebraska as we look to go 7-0!
The 5-0 Huskers are back in the top 10 for the first time since 2010, and looking to get to 6-0 this week as they travel to take on the Indiana Hoosiers. Indiana gave Ohio State a tough game last week, so the Huskers need to be prepared for a battle in this weeks game. Kickoff is at 3:30, so come early, grab a seat, and help us cheer on Nebraska as we look to go 6-0!
What a game last week… From the stopped 2 point conversions, to DPE’s punt return, to that last touchdown drive, and the Blackshirts stopping Oregon on 4th down, the Huskers got a win against a good opponent.
With Oregon and the non-conference slate in the rear view mirror, the Huskers don their all white alternate uniforms and travel to Evanston Illinois this week to take on the Northwestern Wildcats in the Big Ten opener. Kickoff is at 7:30 PM, so come early and grab a seat as the Huskers take on the Wildcats and look to start the conference slate with a W.
Last week against Wyoming the Huskers blew it open in the 4th quarter and forced a total of 6 turnovers on the way to beating the Cowboys 52-17. With the first two games in the bag, the Huskers now look to face the Oregon Ducks as they head to Lincoln for a 3:30 ABC national kickoff.
Oregon’s high flying offense will be a stiff test for the Blackshirts, but the Ducks vulnerable defense will definitely be challenged by Nebraska’s offense. Kickoff is at 3:30 PM, so join us at Buffalo Wild Wings in Oldsmar as the Huskers take on the Ducks in the biggest Non-Conference game in Lincoln for quite some time.
Next up is Wyoming, please join us at Noon to see your Huskers take on Craig Bohl’s Wyoming Cowboys. Thanks to all 93 of you that showed up to our first game watch of the season – not bad for a night game! I think all of us enjoyed the new watchsite and new merchandise.
I want to issue a point of clarification on the season passes. We were initially told that the 10% discount would apply to the entire food and bar tab, but upon further inspection, alcohol is not included. To compensate those people that purchased season passes with the discount of alcohol in mind, we will compensate those passholders with a free TB Husker cotton t-shirt, simply present your passes to a board member at the next event. Thanks to those that participated, all proceeds benefit our University scholarship fund, see recent recipients here.
The pads are popping, and fall practice is in full swing. Three weeks from now, we’ll be watching our Huskers take the field in the first game of the 2016 season. We do have some changes for this year, including our watchsite. We took your feedback during and suggestions after the offseason, and we came to the conclusion that our location last year just didn’t meet the standards we were looking for as a group. Over the past few months, we’ve reached out to a variety of locations, and followed up on all of your leads, and found a new home…
Starting this season, we’ll be meet at the Buffalo Wild Wings off of Hillsborough Avenue in Oldsmar. They offered us reserved seating, a discount on all checks with our season pass, valet parking, and more!
