Some pretty big games and the conference races are heating up. Look at that top five list - you have a #2 versus a #3, Vanderbilt versus Tennessee, another top 25 match-up with South Carolina heading to #24 Mississippi. And then you have Texas at Nebraska.

The Big 12 hasn't been around that long, but in that short period, I think that Texas and Nebraska have developed a pretty healthy rivalry during that short time frame, probably bigger than any type of rivalry we have in football. These are teams fielded by athletic departments that want to be the best in EVERY sport. Most say that. These two schools mean it.  

This is a HUGE series for Nebraska. It's a series that Texas can afford to lose but would rather not.
