Welcome to the Bye week. We have already had so many emotions during this first 8 weeks of football. Hopefully a week of rest will do everyone good, or you’ll just let the pain fester until the Huskers play Purdue.

Since it’s Bye week, I wanted to highlight something else. Wednesday, October 20th is Spirit Day. It is a day for people to wear purple, stand against bullying, and show support for gay, lesbian, and transgendered youth.
