It’s rivalry week here in Nebraska. The Huskers take on one of their greatest foes in the Big Ten, Northwestern!

This game has been a doozy since I can remember. No team gives the Huskers more fits and closer wins and losses than the Wildcats.

No, not even the old purple Wildcats from the old conference. These Wildcats come to play each game against the Big Red and it almost always goes down to the wire.

These rivalry games, I tell you. It should be a crazy game. Oh yeah, it’s also homecoming in Lincoln so that should up the ante even more.

Go Big Red! Beat NW!
