Great big awesome week in Husker Nation (Yes, that included us here at Corn Nation). Nebraska football is back from their bye week to take on the Mighty Hoosiers of Indiana. Nebraska Basketball plays Wichita State in a “secret scrimmage” on Saturday. To kick it all off we have Nebraska track and field athlete Angela Mercuiro named the NCAA’s Woman Of The Year.

On top of that, harvest is fully underway. Hope you all got your beans out by now.
