Road trip!! Our beloved Huskers head out to the west coast for their first road game at Fresno State. After a record-wrecking offensive performance in week 1 and a near-disaster in week 2, most Husker fans are wondering which team they will see this weekend. Fresno State has looked miserable in losing their first two games and are looking to get their season turned around. For more on the matchup, check out Husker Mike's review and Brian’s Q&A.

Weather: HOT, HOT, HOT! It is expected to be somewhere around 99 degrees at kickoff. After the cool weather in Lincoln, this will be a big change for our Huskers and their travelling fans. It will be especially critical with injuries and lack of depth at WR and defensive line. Will we have enough bodies to rotate through if players need a breather?
Odds: Nebraska is favored by 13.5 points
