It's been almost five years since Nebraska beat Kansas, and there's only been one win in the last ten years, since NU swept the Jayhawks in the regular season in 1999.  Quite a terrible streak, considering that up to 1999, we routinely beat KU in Lincoln, even if we did struggle in Lawrence.

Lately, though, Nebraska has struggled mightily against KU.  At the last NU-KU game I attended in person, I spent most of the first half hiding behind my free rally towel, having vowed not to take it off my face until we scored (which took a while on a 34-0 run).  Up until last year's Big XII quarterfinal, the games had bordered on the ridiculous.

But, this isn't the KU teams of the last 3 years.  7 players are gone from the defending champs.  They're 4-0 in league, but the 4 teams they beat have a combined total of 3 wins in conference.  They're playing well, but they're not an all-world squad.

This is probably the best chance in a while to break this 11-game skid in the series.  KU comes into Lincoln unranked for the first time in a long time; NU has been either ahead or within 2 points going into the last 2 minutes of every conference game this year.  The Jayhawks ALWAYS bring their A-game for Nebraska, though, so we can't sit back and expect to hang with them.

Break the Streak! Beat KU!
