Pay per view info has been released regarding the Idaho game, although I see anything different than what was available for the Western Kentucky game.
The cost is the same - $39.95, up from the $29.95 of last season. The justification is that the games are in HD this season, which is funny (sad, not ha ha) because satellite providers like Dish Network have started running deals on HD - "Free HD for Life".
Note that Huskers.com reports that PPV plans for South Dakota State have not been announced in the off-chance that the game is picked up by one of the regular television partners. If I had to bet, I'd guess the chances of that happening are slim and none.
It was easy to see why Husker fans would plunk down the $39.95 for Western Kentucky. It was the first chance to see an improved offense and a defense without Ndamukong Suh, both attempts at answering the question - how good will the 2010 version be?
Idaho comes to town and the game is on PPV again. Here's your key point about Idaho:
Idaho's last win against a BCS-conference team came in 2000 against WSU. Since then, it has lost 20 straight to big-conference schools by an average of 29.6 points per game.
I'll be getting the game again (as I will for South Dakota State), and we'll be hosting a game thread so if you're not getting the game at least you can follow along, and if you like, ask other Husker fans questions throughout the game.
Question is - how many of you will be plunking down another $39.95 for Idaho, and then another $39.95 for South Dakota State after that?
