The start of the Big Ten schedule, the first game since Tom Osborne announced his retirement and of course the alternate uniforms; Husker emotions have been running high all day.
All of that emotion drove some fans into Husker Hounds Saturday afternoon. Many were looking at the new uniforms and apparently liked what they saw. The crowds were stocking up on Husker shirts and hats before heading to the Wisconsin game.
"We at Husker Hounds love 7 p.m. kickoffs because everyone comes and shops here in Omaha before they head down to Lincoln, so it's great," said the store's Scott Strunc. "Eleven a.m. kickoffs kill us, but we love the 7 o'clock kickoffs."
