Husker Items of Interest:

Steve Sipple echos what we've been saying all week about the return of Lydon Murtha and the need for a dominant offensive line.

DE Pierre Allen gets his first career start today due to Barry Turner's injury. What's interesting? Who else will fill in the rotation?

Not exactly a rousing rah-rah bit for NMSU from Las Cruces, but astute in it's observations.

I'll start linking to the Omaha World Herald when their online edition provides consistent links. They're doing better in coverage, a lot better, but holy cow does their web publishing system suck.

Today's TV Schedule - Watchya Watching?

I'm opening this up early to allow comments on early games. There are a bunch of compelling games, starting with last night's South Florida - Kansas tilt. What a game - I do not think I'll be dropping KU much even though they lost. USF's DE Selvie was just phenomenal in that game, unblockable and a game changing performance.

Iowa State versus Iowa - on the Big Ten Network. SB Nation features Black Heart, Gold Pants for Iowa fans, and Clone Chronicles for Iowa State fans.

Nevada at Mizzou - more interesting than first glance because it will show us whether or not the Tiger defense can stop anyone.

I'll be watching Notre Dame vs Michigan if for no other reason than to watch Jimmy Clausen suck it.

Georgia Tech vs Virginia Tech will tell us how much of a fight the Hokies are going to put up in our next game.

Then there's Oklahoma at Washington. Oklahoma should clobber them but I haven't had the chance to see the Sooners yet this season. Are they worthy of a top five ranking?

I'm going to be sick of hearing about Beanie Wells and the USC - Ohio State match up by the time the game ends. They're really pumping this one to the point that if the Buckeyes get destroyed it will REALLY damage their credibility in big games.

That's most of my line up for the day, including some flipping around.

Most of the sites linked above are SB Nation blogs. They'll be running game day threads, and to comment requires a SB Nation account. The good news is that it's a single account across all the sites. Join us and annoy your rivals.
