The Nebraska football team used its week off to recover after eight straight weeks of football. Naturally, a lot of guys were a bit dinged up heading into the break, but now say they feel fresh and ready to go.
Nebraska football lost to Minnesota on Saturday by a final score of 30-23. It was the Huskers’ third straight loss to the Golden Gophers. The Huskers simply came out flat. Adrian Martinez was missing his targets on offense. Meanwhile, Minnesota couldn’t be stopped on offense.
It’s no secret Nebraska’s offensive line has struggled with its performance the last two Saturdays. Against Oklahoma, all five starters on the offensive line had at least one penalty in the game. Those mistakes persisted against Michigan State, on top of the protection and run blocking not being great.
Nebraska head football coach Scott Frost addressed the media for his usual session on Thursday before the team leaves for East Lansing, Michigan on Friday. It’s another big-game opportunity as Big Red will face a Michigan State team that is ranked 20th in the nation.
As of Thursday afternoon, WOWT meteorologists are forecasting a kickoff temperature of 98 degrees in Lincoln on Saturday when Nebraska and Buffalo begin play at 2:30 p.m. That would break the current known Memorial Stadium record.
