It was a game that went into the Nebraska record books and the Ohio State memory banks. The Huskers mounted the biggest comeback in school history a year ago, finishing with a 24-0 flurry to erase a 21-point, second-half deficit to beat the Buckeyes 34-27 in the first Big Ten game ever played in Lincoln.
It's a new year, but Ohio State hasn't forgotten. Heading into Saturday night's showdown at Ohio Stadium, a number of the 12th-ranked Buckeyes say they "owe" the No. 21 Cornhuskers for what happened then.
Coach Urban Meyer says he's heard his players talking about the rematch and vowing to get back at Nebraska in a game that could go a long way toward determining the division champions in the conference.
