The Nebraska Cornhuskers take on the Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Owls Saturday. The 2014 SEASON IS HERE!!!. While we are not going to get the Pelini-Bowl, it should provide a good test to see how much progress our young quarterback has made in the passing game. FAU looks to build on a season that ended with four straight wins and Nebraska looks to start off the season with a loud statement.
