It’s officially autumn.

I made the first pot of chili this weekend. It was kind of a boring weekend football-wise since the Huskers were on bye and the Broncos played Thursday night. At least the Jackrabbits were on the schedule and delivered a beatdown against Northern Iowa.

I also tried to do some fall cleaning. I didn’t get far.

What do you do on football bye weekends? Any special projects?

Weidner out for season with injury
Nebraska women’s basketball guard Allison Weidner suffered a right leg injury in practice on Friday, Oct. 13, and is expected to miss the 2023-24 season.
