You have your clear, regulation-sized bags ready, right? Tailgate food? Red attire?

It is game week. The offseason is over.

In addition to football, the volleyball team is in action this weekend with two matches on Friday and one Saturday. The competition level should be a bit more manageable than last weekend for the Huskers - University of Maryland Baltimore County, Oral Roberts, and St. Mary’s College.

Don’t look now, but the soccer team is tearing it up on the pitch. Not literally, of course, but they are 4-0 on the season. They play Washington State Friday night in a nightcap (9:30 p.m. central). PAC-12.COM | LIVE STATS
