This week, Nebraska stays home to take on the Idaho State Bengals, a FCS school located in Pocatello, Idaho and part of the Big Sky conference. The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network, for those of you who have it (sorry Dish customers), with kickoff at or around 2:30 PM CDT.
Congratulations to Huskerhorsepower for winning Week 3 of the Corn Nation pick'em! And we have a new leader in the clubhouse, with Jonny922 taking point.
The No. 3 Nebraska volleyball team (edit: 8-1) opens the 2012 Big Ten Conference season with a road test with the No. 4 Penn State Nittany Lions (edit: 10-1). The match is slated for Wednesday, Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. CT. The match will be shown on BTN and BTN2Go.com!
Cheer on the ladies if you can!
Such a good guy.
The Check-Down Pass:
Let's hope it works as well as Wrigley! Question: would you want Nebraska to move a game to T. D. Ameritrade (Omaha), Sports Authority Field at Mile High
Mile High(Denver) or Kauffman Stadium (KC)?
"For the first time, we are getting behind the veil of the so-called principle of amateurism," he said. "The principle is being tested by what was known by the NCAA and what they did to address its challenges."
We should answer this question, yes?
Yesterday on CN:
It appears that (most) of the teams ahead of us are undefeated.

The B1G is certainly on fire but we've got to run into it anyway. Take a look at our future opponents.
Why can't we all be happy? #teamsunshine
There is No Place like Nebraska
We don't have much depth here.
4. Kickers and long snappers are not afraid to admit that practice sometimes is not quite as strenuous as the rest of the team. "All the specialists go out to practice 30 minutes before everyone else and get our work in, whether it’s charting field goals, working on short snaps, long snaps, all that stuff. We get our work in early, and then depending on what the special-teams segment is during the practice, it could be punt, kickoff, kickoff return or punt return. On the side at practice, the big thing that (kicker/punter Brett Maher) and I do is we have this game where I try to get 10 perfect snaps on his right hip all consecutively. In our minds, that’s the perfect snap."
Hopefully so - I'd hate for us to waste his redshirt.
It's up to Nebraska's coaches to do that going forward. They're the ones who have to monitor his workload and hold firm to their four-man blueprint at I-back. Burkhead can be the starter and the closer, but actively finding ways to incorporate the backups should be a detailed aspect of every game plan.
Yes - don't waste Cross' redshirt.
Abdullah is 5-foot-9 and 185 pounds, but he can squat 500-plus pounds — on two legs — and has a relentless running style that puts the strength to use.
One heck of a backup.
The secondary has never been in real doubt this season - it was run-stopping that we were worried about.
Just how did the defense change it up Saturday? Click and find out!
The defense's ability to withstand the departure of Pelini indicates that Paupchis isn't really that bad of a coordinator.
At the end of the day, there's no pain too small to get checked out. Whether you're a tough guy coach or a wimpy sportswriter, there's nothing to feel vulnerable about. At the end of the day, you want to see tomorrow.
Pelini's checkup is turning into a huge PSA for all of us. And that's a good thing.
Key take-away from Saturday: Pelini has assembled a quality staff. (Oh, and Pelini's priorities are in order.)
Thinking big is how you win the upsets.
I'd be more impressed if the Idaho State coach used "Mankilling Mastodons" for Nebraska.

Nebraska's Jordan Hooper and Lindsey Moore were both among 25 college players named to the 2012-13 preseason Wade Watch List, announced by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) on Tuesday, Sept. 18.
Good luck, gentlemen!
Games in the spring so no interference with Nebraska football.

Who's ready for a fun time?
>> Lee Barfknecht traveled to Wisconsin this week to document the mess in Madison. In hindsight, we probably should’ve seen it coming. You can’t lose six assistant coaches in the offseason without taking a hit. And a year after Russell Wilson flourished, Bret Bielema appears to be getting burned by his mercenary strategy at quarterback. When times get tough, players in the locker room are naturally more willing to fight for teammates who have been around a while. That’s not Danny O’Brien.
Ooooof. That offensive line...
The hits keep coming for Tennessee.
Bill Snyder's got this.
More proof that the NFL simply doesn't care about the players - seriously, the teams should force players to hire REPUTABLE accountants.
