NCAA Football: Troy at Nebraska Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

I am a little slow in posting this, but the Nebraska-Purdue game on September 29 is going to be televised on the Big Ten Network. Kickoff is at 2:30 and the game is on Nebraska’s homecoming weekend. Purdue was one of the most improved teams in the Big Ten under new head coach Jeff Brohm in 2017. They have had a rough start to the 2018 season, like Nebraska. Both teams have tough games coming up this weekend. Both coaches will be looking to right the ship and get on a winning trend. Here’s to Nebraska being the team who gets on track first.

You’ll also note below that the Husker soccer team is have a great season. They are ranked 21st in the first RPI rankings and boast the reigning Big Ten goalkeeper of the week.

I guess we aren’t just a volleyball school.
