Rivals.com's Mike Huguenin omitted Nebraska/Virginia Tech from his list of "statement games" in 2009. When Virginia Tech blog "FBS" asked Huguenin why, he got a surprising response:
I put Virginia-southern miss on there because I think southern miss has better-than-even chance of winning – and a c-usa school beating an acc school (even one that likely will be predicted to finish last in its division) is big. I didn’t put tech-nebraska because I don’t think huskers can win in Blacksburg; if game were in Lincoln, it would’ve been on there.
(HT: Gobbler Country) Can't win? While I think it'll be an extremely tough game for the Huskers to win, it's not mission impossible either.
