Nebraska plays tonight, and not much else going on. #1 North Carolina is involved in a pretty damned cool game on the deck of the USS Carl Vinson against fellow Big Ten member Michigan State. A big thanks goes out to all of the veterans who have and continue to sacrifice, so that we all can enjoy the world of sports with peace of mind. Now let's start the weekend off right with a win for the Big Red!

SCORE UPDATE: Final Score | Nebraska - 65 SDU - 48

Game Notes |

- South Dakota fell to Nebraska last season 76-68, also in Lincoln.

- Coyote Charlie Westbrook scored a game high 24 points in last season's loss to the Huskers. He'll be back Friday to try and even the score.

- Winning the first game will be important. After playing South Dakota, the Huskers will face three straight post-season teams in USC, Rhode Island, and Oregon.

- Nebraska committed 28 turnovers in the exhibition win over Doane College. (Might want to consider that a Husker "Key to Victory" in Friday's game.)

Here's to going 1-0 and starting the season off on the right foot. GBR!
