A three and three Nebraska team will take the field this Saturday against Michigan. It is the second night game in a row for the Huskers. I honestly cannot remember the last time there has been back to back Night games at Memorial Stadium.

Michigan is favored but maybe, just maybe Nebraska will pull off the win. If they do, it will most likely be due to the help of the fans in he stadium. The Husker faithful should be a determining factor in the outcome of the game.

Jim Harbaugh, as much grief as he gets for his time coaching Michigan, is a good coach. Has he had some bumps during his time in Ann Arbor, of course. But very few coaches have smooth seasons year in and year out.

I imagine it will be a close game regardless of the outcome.

Let’s get loud and stay loud on Saturday. Nebraska needs a banner win for everyone.
