Five Nebraska Football Players that Husker Fans Should Root For in 2024

Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images Injuries are a part of football. Overcoming injuries is also a part of football. The latter is one of the best aspects of the game.

Corn Nation Overreaction Revisits Nebraska Football’s 28-14 Win over LA Tech

This week on the Corn Nation Overreaction Revisits Podcast, Greg and Hoss look back at the Week 4 2023 game between Nebraska and Louisiana Tech.

Despite losing two of their top running backs to injuries, Nebraska managed to leverage their ground game against Louisiana Tech’s weaker defense. The Huskers’ ability to contain Louisiana Tech’s air-raid offense and capitalize on their own running strengths were critical to their...

Friday Flakes: The Days of NIL in College Sports Thankfully Could Be Numbered
