The Early Signing Period has come and gone with the next signing period about a month away on Feb. 3. In between, teams across the country are still battling for the final pieces of their 2021 recruiting class. Some of the best players in the entire country have yet to commit to a school, and many will do just that on Saturday, Jan. 2 in the All-American Bowl. The actual game has been canceled due to COVID-19, but instead the annual event will feature nine players expected to announce their commitments. This includes the highest-ranked recruit in the 2021 class, according to the 247Sports Composite, with Korey Foreman.

Nebraska football vs. Iowa preview

nebraska football

Nebraska football and the Iowa Hawkeyes have been headed in two different directions. For the past five years, Husker fans have had to suffer embarrassing loss after embarrassing loss. The Hawkeyes on the other have witnessed some of the best football in program history. Being a Husker fan, I can't even deny that fact. Iowa has been the better program for the better part of a decade. Both sides have their different view of the game. Some might tell you it isn't a rivalry. Others will say Nebraska only cares about the game because it lost so many times to the team in the East, but let me tell you what I see. Every year I see two teams take the field

Nebraska football falls to Illinois

nebraska football

After Saturday, Nebraska football may regret bringing football back to the Big Ten. The Huskers, favored by 16.5 points fell to the Illinois Fighting Illini 41-23. Memorial Stadium used to be a place teams feared to play. That has not been the case for quite some time. Illinois had not beaten Nebraska at Memorial Stadium in 96 years. Must that be repeated again, 96 years! From the get-go, Nebraska had issues. What happened? Do we really even want to go over this game again? I am pretty sure Nebraska football would prefer not to relive this past Saturday or the past six years for that matter. Firstly, let's check out Nebraska's first possession of the game. Luke McCaffrey attempted a "forward" pass to Wandale Robinson.

Nebraska football vs. Illinois preview

Nebraska football will be looking for back-to-back wins this Saturday against Illinois. After two straight losses to start the 2020 season, Nebraska got back on track as it knocked off 0-3 Penn State last Saturday. The Huskers beat the Nittany Lions in a 30-23 nailbiter. Redshirt freshman Luke McCaffrey got his first shot as the starting quarterback of the Cornhuskers. The young quarterback accumulated over 210 yards of total offense. Illinois has so far disappointed this season after last year's 6-7 finish in which the Illini knocked off No. 8 Wisconsin. The Illini sit at 1-3 on the year after blowout losses to Wisconsin, Minnesota and a nailbiter to then-undefeated Purdue. Illinois got its first win of the season last Saturday against

Nebraska football holds off Penn State for first win

If you made a list of every way to lose a football game, the Huskers would've used the entire list and more. Nebraska football pulled off its first win Saturday when the 0-3 Nittany Lions came to Lincoln. Penn State, a preseason top-10 team, looked nothing like the part when the Huskers pulled off a 30-23 victory. The Huskers gave Penn State its first 0-4 start since the 2001 season. Nebraska avoided starting 0-3 for the second time in three years. McCaffrey leads Huskers to early lead Redshirt freshman Luke McCaffrey got his first start Saturday leading the Huskers to an early lead over Penn State. Nebraska looked nothing like a team ranked at the bottom of the Big Ten in scoring

Penn State football finds hope in Will Levis, falls to 0-4

What’s worse than going 0-3? Going 0-4. Penn State football picked up right where it left off on Saturday dropping yet another game to continue this frustrating season. Changes were made, but the results were the same. It was the game for the backup quarterbacks on Saturday as Nebraska’s Luke McCaffrey got his first start of the season over Adrian Martinez. On the other side of the ball, Sean Clifford was benched for Will Levis after three Penn State offensive possessions. Penn State's first half struggles On the opening drive of the game, McCaffrey picked apart the Nittany Lion defense looking like he’s started every game of his career so far. The younger brother of Carolina Panthers’ running back Christian McCaffrey took the

Penn State football vs. Nebraska preview

Penn State football will look to bounce back from an abysmal start to the 2020 season as it travels to Nebraska on Saturday afternoon. I’ve complained as much as the next guy about how bad Penn State football fans have it and how this year has been a train wreck, but it’s game week nonetheless. I’m tired of being the laughing stock of the Big Ten. Let’s take a look ahead of Saturday’s matchup. Offense All eyes will be on quarterback Sean Clifford, who has been taking some heat for the team’s 0-3 start. James Franklin decided to keep Clifford in the entire game against Maryland despite not doing… well… anything in all four quarters. The coaches will try some new looks

0-5. That is the combined record of Nebraska football and the Penn State Nittany Lions. Who would have guessed at this point in the season a depleted Penn State team would come limping into Lincoln, Nebraska at 0-3. At noon ET on FOX, the Huskers and Nittany Lions will meet for only the fifth time since Nebraska joined the Big Ten. Nebraska owns the all-time record at 9-8. Both teams are looking for their first win of the season, so who will come out on top?

Nebraska football: Close games against Northwestern

nebraska football

Nebraska joined the Big Ten conference in 2011. Since then one commonality between Nebraska football and Northwestern has been close games between the schools. The matchups of the past three seasons have been especially close with each game being decided by the final play or overtime. We look back at a few of the Cornhuskers closest matchups against the Northwestern Wildcats. Nov. 4, 2017: Northwestern 31, Nebraska 24 The Wildcats came to Lincoln sitting with a 5-3 record, riding two-consecutive overtime wins against Iowa, and No. 15 Michigan State. After being tied 14-14 at the half, Nebraska got things going with a quick 50-yard pick-six by Marcus Newby that put the Huskers up 21-17.
