NCAA Football: Nebraska at Illinois Ron Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

It’s over.

Well, it’s over for he Big Ten that is. As of this past weekend the 2021-22 sports season is officially over. There are no more sports until August. Michigan baseball was eliminated in the regionals with dramatic fashion by Louisville. Yes, another baseball season will go by without a team from the B1G in the College World Series. A shocker, I know.

So, now we have the upcoming season to look forward to. Enjoy your summer. Go see a baseball game or go play golf. Sit back and wait in anticipation as Nebraska Vs. Northwestern in Ireland will kick off the college football season. Yes, our beloved Cornhuskers will travel to Ireland to take on the Wildcats.

I am sure it will be must see tv for the entire nation as it will be the first game of the year. I just hope it doesn’t end up like last season when Nebraska lost to Illinois in the first game of the year...
