Years past Minnesota games have never been as important as the one we are going to play this week. Why? Well we have a bye week preceding before a two week stretch against Indiana and Purdue. Count those games up and we could be 7-2 going into the Wisconsin game.
The last three games are Wisconsin, Maryland, and Iowa(sucks). Could Nebraska get to 9 wins this year?! Not without beating Minnesota. Going from 4-8 to 9-3 would be a clear indication of trending upward, all the while slowly and quietly building a great recruiting class, which is looking to finish in the top 20. We have a ton of talent on the 2019 class getting experience this year with potential to pull in some more top level talent in this 2020 class.
All this momentum can be immediately interrupted by losing this upcoming game against the Gophers. Let’s just win baby!
The Stuff You Came For
With the sixth game of the year in the books, let’s take a look at what we learned about the Cornhuskers in this match-up.
The break between the third and fourth quarters of Nebraska football games have been a bit of a hole in the traditions of Husker football. In years past, the Cornhusker Marching Band had played “Hey Baby”...which wasn’t bad, but wasn’t keeping up with some of the other cool traditions at other places, such as jumping around at Wisconsin.
One thing the Nebraska Cornhuskers love to do is run the football. They may have found a future gem in 3-star Edison Prep (Oklahoma) commit Sevion Morrison.
Nebraska began preparing for this week’s game at unbeaten Minnesota as if sophomore Noah Vedral would start at quarterback in place of Adrian Martinez.
For the second time in three weeks, Nebraska freshman wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson played a central role in a narrow win for his team.
The Nebraska football team worked out in full pads for two hours on Wednesday in Memorial Stadium on Tom Osborne Field.
It’s not always easy to figure out which players are going to play in which games given the flexibility of the NCAA’s relatively new four-game redshirt rule.
It’s CHAIR WEEK here at Corn Nation as we get ready to fight for the greatest rivalry trophy (if you have a trophy for it, then it’s a RIVALRY god damnit!) in all of college sports: the $5 bits of broken chair trophy! Damn you Delany, on the way out, make sure we make it the officially official trophy the athletic departments are forced to recognize as the award for rowing the farthest[TM] when the Gophers and Huskers play.

Week 6 of college football was filled with plenty of shenanigans and boneheaded plays. Let’s check out football this week’s cob nominations.
This episode I bring back Matt Brown to talk about California law SB 206. SB 206 is the law that allows NCAA student-athletes the ability to make money off NIL, Name, Image, and Likeness.
I expected better out of Nebraska’s offense, and to a lesser extent, the defense as well. I thought this would be the week that the offense would play better. On one very critical measure, they did: NO TURNOVERS! But only 319 total yards? Not very impressive, though it’s important to note that Northwestern is averaging under 300 yards per game in total defense in conference play.
Stuff You Did Not Come Here For
More than 200 years ago, scholars glued the remains of an ancient papyrus scroll onto cardboard to preserve it. But the scroll, a history of Plato’s Academy, also had writing on the back. Now scholars have deployed imaging technology to read what’s been concealed.
Something odd is happening to streams and rivers on the high plains of Kansas and Colorado. Some have disappeared.
