Bay Area Husker ENews 10-6-09

Hey Bay Area Husker Fans!

The shutout of Louisiana Lafayette was a great win for the Huskers...especially because it was a night of celebration as they played to their 300th consecutive sellout crowd in Memorial Stadium. Amazing tradition and the best and most loyal fans in college football! You don't have to believe me...you can read about it in the article below that was written by a Ragin' Cajun sportswriter about Nebraska's hospitality and our fans.

Figured I'd wait to see what the polls looked like after last weekend's games before sending this out. The Huskers are slowly creeping up the Top 25 list, and have moved passed Missouri. Thursday night's contest against the Tigers will probably be a make or break game for the rest of the season for Nebraska. A win will mean climbing even higher in the polls, being a contender for the Big 12 Championship game, continued TV coverage for remaining games and lots of other good stuff. Lets hope its not a nail biter and they continue to dominate like they did last week.

Lots of other interesting stuff to read. We have some tickets available to the Iowa State game listed below. There's a great article about a couple that have been to 363 games and donated their ticket stubs to the Athletic Department for the 300th sellout poster. There's a pitch from HuskersNside to subscribe, and a pitch from the First National Bank of Omaha to enter a raffle for free Oklahoma tickets and other goodies.

Enjoy!Go Big Red (White and Blue),


Watch Parties:

We had a great turnout for the last game, so lets keep up the action. The Mizzou game will be broadcast this Thursday night on ESPN and kickoff starts at 6 P.M. Pacific Time. All four of our watch sites will show the game, so come on out and join other Red Clad Husker Fans to cheer on the team and grab some pub grub for dinner. Jack's in Fremont will have their famous Prime Rib available, so put your order in when you arrive to make sure they don't run out.

The Texas Tech game on the 17th will be televised on ABC as a regional broadcast and on one of the ESPN channels in areas that it is not shown by a local ABC affiliate. I will be out of town next week so do as the article below says, check the ABC Broadcast map and local listings to see if its available on the west coast. The game is scheduled to start at 12:30 P.M. Pacific Time. So to be sure you will get to see it you should show up at your favorite watch site and join other Husker fans to watch the game.

This week's Randy York's N-Sider article is too big to put in this email so here's the link...a great read for any long time Husker fan!


The Matchup
Nebraska opens Big 12 Conference play with a key North Division matchup against Missouri in Columbia, on Thursday, Oct. 8. The matchup at Missouri’s Faurot Field will be carried to a national television audience by ESPN with kickoff set for just after 6 p.m. (PDT). The winner of the NU-Mizzou contest has been the North representative in the Big 12 title each of the past three seasons.

The Huskers will bring a 3-1 record to Columbia with the lone setback a 16-15 loss at No. 6 Virginia Tech on Sept. 19. Overall, Nebraska has outscored the opposition 157-28 through four games, including three lopsided home victories. Nebraska is ranked 22nd in the coaches poll and 21st according to the Associated Press (Oct. 4 rankings).

Missouri begins Big 12 play with a perfect 4-0 record, most recently posting a 31-21 victory at Nevada on Sept. 25. The Tigers are ranked 18th in the coaches poll and check in at No. 24 in the Associated Press poll. The Tigers are among the nation’s most explosive offensive units entering the contest, ranking 16th in total offense.

The Series
The game will mark the 102nd all-time meeting between the schools, with Nebraska holding a 63-35-3 overall edge. Missouri has been victorious in the past two meetings and has won three straight at Faurot Field. This will mark the fifth time since the inception of the Big 12 that NU has opened league play against the Tigers, with the Huskers holding a 3-1 advantage in those games.


Lincoln - Coach Bo Pelini said the No. 21 Nebraska football team will be ready for an important Big 12 North battle when the Huskers take on No. 24 Missouri on Thursday night in Columbia.

Pelini said the challenge facing the 3-1 Huskers is apparent against the 4-0 Tigers.

"It’s the first game in the North. What do you have to do? You have to win your games in your division," Pelini said. "It’s pretty obvious what the challenge is and going on the road to do it.”

Pelini said the Tigers, who won the Big 12 North title a year ago, have talented players on both offense and defense.

"They do some good things. They’re well-coached. They have some pretty good players," Pelini said. "They have some guys that fly around. They’re very aggressive. We’ll have our work cut out for us. They’re a good group. They’re good personnel-wise. They play really hard and they’re well-coached.”

Pelini also said he believes the Huskers are ahead of the curve compared to their play and execution compared to his first season as head coach in 2008.

“I like to think we’re further ahead. I didn’t think we were a very good football team at that time last year in a lot of different ways," Pelini said. "We were trying to find ourselves offensively and defensively. We just weren’t playing very well. We had a long way to go. I think we’re further along now, and we’ll find out Thursday night how far we’ve come.”


With the Huskers' Big 12 opener just two days away, Nebraska Head Coach Bo Pelini said after practice Tuesday that the team was sharp both mentally and physically in its preparation for another tough road trip.

The Huskers practiced for 90 minutes inside the Hawks Center Tuesday afternoon, wrapping up a week of training for their first conference opponent.

"It was good, we had a good practice," Pelini said. "We got a lot done. I thought it was a good way to finish the week physically. It was a physical day, but very much a mental day also. We got a lot of things covered. It was pretty sharp; I like what I saw."

Even with the forecast predicting rain on Thursday night, Pelini stated that the weather will not change the Huskers' game plan.

"We can't control that," Pelini said. "We're ready for all of that. I know this, they are going to be playing on the same field and the same weather conditions that we are."


The Big 12 Conference announced Monday that Nebraska's game with Texas Tech on Oct. 17 will kick off at 12:30 p.m. (PDT) and will be televised to a regional audience on ABC.

The game will also be shown on ESPN in some markets that do not receive the contest on their local ABC affiliate. A coverage map for the ABC/ESPN games of Oct. 17 will be available by the middle of next week.

Nebraska's appearance on ABC will be its second of the season, after the Huskers also appeared on the network against Virginia Tech on Sept. 19. The Huskers' game this Thursday at Missouri will be televised to a national audience on ESPN.

Other Big 12 games scheduled for telecast on Oct. 17 include: Oklahoma-Texas (11 a.m., ABC), Kansas at Colorado (6 p.m., FSN) and Missouri at Oklahoma State (8:15 p.m., ESPN2).Game times and television information for the remainder of Nebraska's games will be available six to 12 days in advance of kickoff.

The SEC THINKS it has great atmosphere.......
SEP 28
Written by: jaywalker
Monday, September 28, 2009 8:53 AM

This is my 18th season covering Cajuns football. And, for eight years before that, I had the opportunity to broadcast selected games on TV as well.

I've been to nine SEC stadiums. (I'll go to a tenth next season at Georgia.) I've seen the grove at Ole Miss, experienced the Gator Chomp, the Mississippi State cowbells, been a part of Alabama football in both Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. I've been called "Tigerbait" in Baton Rouge and experienced some pretty good hospitality in South Carolina.

I've said hello to the folks at Illinois and Minnesota. Felt September heat in Tempe, AZ.

Been to Manhattan, Lubbock, Austin, Stillwater and College Station. College Station was probably the best. Folks say "Howdy" when they see you. And they say "welcome."

Haven't been to the Horseshoe, the Big House or Happy Valley. Nor have I seen Touchdown Jesus.

But I've been to College Football Nirvana.

It's located in Lincoln, Nebraska.

From the time we touched down ("Welcome to Lincoln," the police officers doing the escort said) to the time we left the stadium ("Thanks so much for coming, have a safe trip home. We hope you'll come back again") every Cajun fan felt like a guest.

That's right. A guest. Not the opposition...not the enemy....a guest.

Check into the Cornhusker Marriott, not far from campus. Fans of Big Red Nation are already there. Smiles, handshakes....welcome to Lincoln. Good luck tomorrow.

Board the bus for dinner. Arrive at Misty's, Lincoln's famous steakhouse (I mean, you gotta eat a steak, right?). There were about 25 in our party. We had to wait about twenty minutes for them to get everything ready. No problem. As soon as the patrons saw the Cajun gear, they wanted to talk...introduce themselves....welcome to Lincoln....thanks so much for coming. Hope you enjoy the game.....Is this for real??

And, it continued throughout the evening and into the night. We made lots of friends. We Cajun people make friends pretty easily, but it's even easier when folks want to be friends.

In Lincoln, they all want to be your friend.

Gameday is different in Lincoln. They tailgate, sure....but it's tougher because, well, there's just not a lot of tailgaiting spots. But they do open the soccer field next to the stadium. Families can let the kids roam free. Nebraska radio does a pregame show there. And, a band plays during the commercial breaks.

I did an interview at the soccer field with the Nebraska radio folks. And then, had a pretty good trek to the media entrance. At each gate, the sight was the same. Hundreds lined up, waiting for the gates to open so they could get into the stadium and watch their team warm up.

By the time Nebraska came out, about 45 minutes before kickoff, the stadium was about 65% full. There was no "hey, let's stay outside and pound a few more beers."Because it was gameday.

And they came to see football.

By the time the band was ready to come out, 86000 strong were in their seats. They stood and clapped along when the Cornhusker Band played "Fight on Cajuns" to honor their guests. And when the band played "There is no Place Like Nebraska" I knew that the statement was true.

For the first time ever in my years covering the Cajuns, I did not hear a single boo when the Cajuns came out of their tunnel onto their sidelines; in fact, I heard a smattering of applause.

During the game, 86000 cheered as Nebraska rolled. They didn't leave at halftime to go out and start drinking (and remember it was 34-0 at the half). Some were outside, but they had passes to get back in and by the time the second half was ready to kick off, they were all back in their seats.

In the fourth quarter there were STILL over 80000 in the stands. Security keeps an eye out for the sign of alcohol in the stands, which is how trouble starts. If they see alcohol they don't turn a blind eye. After all, college football is about a FAMILY atmosphere.

And when it ended, the fans stayed for another Cornhusker tradition. They applauded the Cajuns as they left the field.

Now you might say...sure, it's easy to clap for someone when you just beat them 55-0. But they do that when their team LOSES. The newspaper on Saturday morning reprinted a handwritten letter from Florida State coach Bobby Bowden after the Seminoles got a hard fought 18-14 win years ago. Yep, the Nebraska fans cheered them as they left.

More of the same post game. There was a young man in a wheelchair where the Cajun players were getting their postgame meal. As each player came out, the young man thanked them for coming and wished them safe travels home. Many of the players stopped to chat for a minute.

Then it was over. And, as the buses left for the airport, the fans that were still there waved and applauded. No one finger salutes. No "you suck" chants. Simply, safe travels, my friends.

If the two teams should play again in the future, plan ahead Cajun Fans. Make the long drive or the relatively short flight. Come in Friday...leave Sunday. And, you will learn what REAL college football atmosphere is about.

Because, trust me.....there is no place like Nebraska.


I have 2 tickets for the Iowa State game - on Sat., Oct. 24th - Section 35 - Row 94 - seats 94 and 95. -- from what I can tell, the seats are right below the sky boxes - The tickets cost $54 - each.

Willis and Fran Regier donated their ticket stubs from all of NU's NCAA record sellout streak.

For This Couple, It's 363 Nebraska Football Games and Still Counting
By Chris Anderson

Willis and Fran Regier are pretty much like any other Husker football couple. They go to the game each week, making the drive from Bellevue, Neb. They know everyone in their West Stadium section and wouldn't trade their seats for anything.

What makes Willis, 90, and Fran, 94, unique among Husker fans, is that they have been going to games since they first purchased season tickets in 1950. They bought their first season tickets soon after World War II, have sat in the same seats in the North end of the West Stadium since 1950 and have been loyal contributors to the program since 1960. Willis said he got Fran hooked on the Huskers after taking her to Memorial Stadium on Nov. 4, 1943, to see the Huskers face off against Iowa in a blizzard. "I knew if she sat through that game, she would be a fan then," he said.

363 Games and Counting

There are many families who have had season tickets throughout the sellout streak. After all, that's what makes Nebraska special and an NCAA record 300 sellouts possible. And there are likely a few other fans, like Willis and Fran, who have seen all or nearly all 300 games in the sellout streak (and we want to hear from you, too). Just click here, enter your name and e-mail address, select "Huskers.com content" on the "Area of Interest" drop-down box and share a memory with us in the "Request description" content area. After that, hit the "submit support request" and send us your thoughts.

The Regiers, season ticket holders 12 years before the first sellout against Missouri on Nov. 3, 1962, are indeed special fans because they seen an additional 63 home games beyond the 300 played in Memorial Stadium under head coaches Bill Glassford, Pete Elliott and Bill Jennings.

You would think that rain, sleet, snow or a family occasion would deter the couple from at least a few games in the 48-year sellout streak. But, according to the couple, they have missed just one game in the 300-game streak. They attended their son Bill's wedding on Sept. 21, 1991, when Nebraska played host to Washington. Luckily, a television set was available at the reception so Willis and Fran could watch the game, but the 36-21 loss to the Huskies in their absence still hurts a bit.

Fewer still, and perhaps no other, had the farsighted vision that Willis must have had that inspired him to keep every ticket stub from those games.

He had them all, and then some. Some of the tickets (from section 30, row 20, seats 9 and 10), even have the scores written on them. Win or lose, Willis kept them in a shoe box for more than a half century. In 1994, Willis loaned those tickets to the athletic department in order to make a 200th sellout poster. This season, when again contacted by athletics to see if he kept the tradition going, Willis donated them to the department. This enabled local photographer Alan Jackson to take the photo for the commemorative 300th sellout print, which every season ticket holder will receive as a gift from the athletic department. The tickets are displayed in a trophy case in the West Stadium, along with the throwback jerseys the team is wearing against Lousiana-Lafayette.

The Early Days

Willis and Fran were not able to attend many Husker football games during college, because money and jobs were hard to find. Fran, whose parents farmed in Red Cloud, began college in 1934 and graduated from the Teacher's College with a business degree in 1939. Willis, a Hastings native, started at UNL in 1937, graduating with a degree in architecture in 1942. Fran worked in private homes to meet room and board requirements while Willis worked at Magee's Clothing Store at 12th and O Streets in downtown Lincoln. He started as a paper bailer, making 25 cents an hour. Later, Willis was promoted to a sales position, assisting in the ladies' accessories department and in the boys' department toward the end of his five years of service with Magee's.

They met on a blind date in November of 1939. Fran was a "stand-in" for another girl who was originally to go out with Willis. They went to see nationally known evangelist E. Stanley Jones at the Nebraska Union because it was free. The happy couple later married on June 15, 1941, at St. Paul Methodist Church in Lincoln - 68 blissful years ago. Four years younger than Fran, Willis said he "married an older woman because a woman's life expectancy is longer. And so far it's working!"

Willis was still in school when they wed. Fran worked in the Temple Building in the Architecture Library while Elmer Magee graciously raised Willis' salary to 40 cents an hour to help them make ends meet. Following a military ordinance depot project in Sidney while living in Kimball, Willis was an inspector of B-26 and B-29 bombers at Glenn L. Martin plant in Bellevue. Willis was drafted in 1944, just after their first child, Diane, was born.

When Uncle Sam Called, Willis Answered

Willis proudly served his country until the end of the war as a member of the 736th Field Artillery Battalion, which was attached to General Patton's Third Army. Willis sailed to Europe on the Queen Elizabeth - the largest ship in the world at the time. They were allowed to sail unescorted as the Queen was thought to be faster than enemy submarines.

Willis' younger brother, Don, was a member of the 106th Infantry Division, which was captured by the Germans in the Battle of the Bulge. On Good Friday morning of 1945, Willis' unit traveled past the POW camp where Don was being held near Kassel, Germany. Just two hours prior, the Germans began retreating and had vacated the camp. Don recognized the passing battalion as Willis' group, and managed to stop the chaplain and slip him a piece of paper with his name and serial number to give Willis. Willis got permission from his commander to take a fellow soldier and a Jeep to go back to the camp and see his brother, thus becoming the first uncaptured Americans to be allowed into the camp. Willis shared his C-rations with the starving soldiers, which consisted of beef stew, beef hash, and chicken noodle soup made by Swanson in Omaha.

In the line of fire at other times, Willis was fortunate to suffer only a torn raincoat by a German .88 shell fragment and returned to Fran and Nebraska as a staff sergeant. Margot Regier Cook was born nine months after Willis returned from the war. Twin boys, Phil and Bill, followed a few years later. All four of the Regier children attended UNL, with Diane, Phil and Bill earning bachelor's and advanced degrees.

Willis went on to own and operate Willis Regier, Inc., an architecture company located in Omaha for many years. He retired and closed the business in 1980 but served as a project architect with the Corps of Engineers until 1990. He continues to work with the city of Bellevue and Dean Wayne Drummond of the UNL College of Architecture as needed.

Nebraska Fans for Life ...

Through the years, Willis and Fran enjoyed traveling to road and bowl games and to Oklahoma and Missouri games in particular, where they have close friends. The Regiers were even honored at an Oklahoma game in Norman along with an Oklahoma couple. Some of Willis and Fran's favorite memories from Husker football games, in no particular order, include:

The beautiful view of the state capitol in the 1950s from West Stadium, where the Regiers' first season tickets were located (cost was $3 per ticket).

Watching the balloons when they are released after the first score.

The flyovers before the games and the joint team prayer and fireworks after games.

The way fans stay to applaud as the team leaves the field. ("We were in the section that began that tradition," Fran said.)

Traveling to every Big Eight stadium, and five or six bowl games. ("Once a Mizzou fan stole my hat after a game in Columbia," Willis remembered.)

Obtaining a piece of the goalposts that were torn down in 1959 after the Huskers broke the Sooners' 74-game winning streak in a 25-21 upset win.

Riding the train from Omaha to games($5 from South Omaha to the stadium).

Meeting Lynn Swann at the Colorado game on Oct. 29, 1994, when Swann interviewed them from the sideline as part of the 200th consecutive celebration.

Willis and Fran have seen games coached by eight different Husker head coaches and made observations about many. They "liked Devaney's sense of humor"; admire Coach Osborne for his "sense of honor and for beginning the Teammates program" (for which they both are still mentors); count Ron Brown as a good friend and admire him as a "conscientious Christian who has helped many players find their way in life"; and think "Bo is a wonderful father and a superb football coach."

Although asked repeatedly, Willis held firmly to his belief that his favorite game "is still the current game" and added that Memorial Stadium is a place unlike any other to watch a game - in part because of his fellow fans who helped build the incredible tradition of sellouts.

The final thought of this dedicated Husker couple? "Nebraska fans are every bit as good as we think we are."



Brenden Stai was a first-team All-America offensive guard on Nebraska's 1994 national championship team that beat Miami, 24-17, in the Orange Bowl.

A third-round draft choice, he spent eight years in the NFL, including his first five with Pittsburgh, where he became a Super Bowl starter.

Sometimes, the best defensive analysis can come from an offensive player, especially one who averaged 11 "pancake" blocks a game his senior year at Nebraska, meaning he knocked a defender off his feet 132 times that memorable season.

Now a sales associate for an outdoor property company, Stai also provides post-game radio analysis for the Husker Sports Network, and let the record show that he likes how Nebraska's defense keeps developing and improving.

He likes the way the Huskers are coached, the way they're "flying around" and the passion they're showing as the nation's No. 1-ranked defense against scoring.

Stai, in fact, is so impressed with the defense that he sees it coming all the way back to true "Blackshirt football" reminiscent of the late-1990s. Stai said if the Huskers play well and exact some "payback" Thursday night in a nationally televised game in Columbia, Blackshirts could be coming soon, whether it's after Missouri or some other game later in the season when the coaches think they're hitting their stride and maximizing their potential.


Two pairs of Huskers helped their teams stay undefeated as 18 former Nebraska players saw action during Week 4 of the 2009 NFL season.

Denver's Correll Buckhalter and Russ Hochstein both contributed in the Broncos' last-second 17-10 victory over Dallas, as Buckhalter registered 92 yards of total offense (37 rushing, 55 receiving), while Hochstein started on the Denver offensive line (left guard). On the season, Buckhalter is averaging 7.2 yards per rush for the AFC West-leading Broncos, a 2.5 yard increase from his career average (4.7).

The New Orleans Saints also lead their division (NFC South) with a 4-0 record with the help of contributions from linebacker Scott Shanle and left guard Carl Nicks. Shanle started his 27th consecutive game and totaled five tackles in the Saints' 24-10 win against the New York Jets, with Nicks earning his 17th straight start on the offensive line.

Kansas City's Mike Brown and Demorrio Williams turned in two of the best individual efforts of the week. Brown had nine tackles, including one sack on New York Giants' quarterback Eli Manning, while Williams also totaled nine stops with a pass deflection.

Chicago's Zackary Bowman and Josh Bullocks both saw action in the Bears' 48-24 victory over Detroit. Bowman has been one of the Bears' top defenders this season and registered four tackles, while Bullocks made one stop on special teams.

A total of 33 former Nebraska players are on National Football League rosters as of Oct. 5, 2009. Of the 33 players, 23 players are active, while three are on injured reserve and seven are on practice squads.

Larry The Cable Guy as Guest Coach

So you've always wanted to know what life was like inside Nebraska's locker room and on the field for a football game.

Doesn't everyone?

Dan Whitney, a.k.a. Larry the Cable Guy, is no exception, and he was in his element last Saturday night as a guest coach for Nebraska's historic 300th consecutive sellout at Memorial Stadium.

Although he moved this season from his North Stadium skybox suite to another suite that overlooks the visiting team's fans in the West Stadium, Larry the Cable Guy was only too willing to eat with the team, ride with the team, listen to the pre-game, halftime and post-game speech, participate in the Tunnel Walk and pretend like he had a meaningful role in Nebraska's 55-0 win over Louisiana-Lafayette.

Press the button above and spend a few short minutes with Larry the Cable Guy on the sidelines.

Hopefully, you'll have as much fun watching him as he did watching the Huskers.

Later this week, make sure you join 1972 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Rodgers, the other guest coach for Nebraska on Saturday. Johnny the Jet also agreed to "mic up" with Huskers.com.

You'll find that even though Rodgers once graced the same field, a guest coaching experience never gets old for him either.



Following an off weekend, the ninth-ranked Nebraska volleyball team returns to the NU Coliseum Wednesday night, as the Huskers take on the Kansas Jayhawks. First serve for the 126th consecutive sellout is slated for 7 p.m. CDT and the match will be carried on selected Husker Sports Network stations and on Huskers.com with John Baylor and Lindsay Peterson calling all of the action. Wednesday’s match will also be televised statewide on NET-1 and NET-HD with Larry Punteney and Kathi Weiskamp on the call. It is the sixth of 10 matches shown on NET during the 2009 regular season.


Norman, Okla. – On an emotional night, the No. 10 Nebraska volleyball team found a way to win, snapping a two-match losing streak with a 3-2 victory (17-25, 26-24, 25-15, 25-27, 15-10) over Oklahoma Wednesday evening at McCasland Fieldhouse.

The Huskers (10-4, 3-2 Big 12) received career nights all around, led by freshman Hannah Werth’s career-best 17 kills that paced four Nebraska players in double figures. Brook Delano and Lindsey Licht had 14 kills apiece, while Kori Cooper added a season-high 13 kills for the Big Red. Sydney Anderson dished out a season-high 54 assists and added a career-high 16 digs, as NU outhit Oklahoma, .227-.172.


Lincoln – Despite 13 kills and a season-best four blocks from Tara Mueller, sixth-ranked Nebraska fell to No. 2 Texas, 25-22, 18-25, 25-17, 25-17 in front of a sellout NU Coliseum crowd of 4,166 Saturday afternoon.

The Huskers (9-4, 2-2 Big 12) had more kills and digs than the Longhorns, but were done in by mistakes, committing 34 hitting errors and a costly 15 service errors against Texas (9-0, 4-0 Big 12).

Muller was one of three Huskers to record at least 10 kills in the loss, as Lindsey Licht totaled 12 kills, while freshman Hannah Werth added 11 kills. Kori Cooper added a season-best nine kills on .318 hitting for Nebraska.

The loss snapped the Huskers’ 82-match win streak in the NU Coliseum dating back to the 2004 campaign, while Texas, which won in Lincoln for the first time since 1988, became the first Big 12 team to escape with a win in Lincoln since Missouri accomplished the feat in 2003.


Lincoln - The Nebraska soccer team used one of its most complete-game efforts of the season to earn its first Big 12 victory with a 2-0 win over Oklahoma State on Sunday afternoon at the Nebraska Soccer Field.

The Huskers (7-2-3, 1-1-1 Big 12) were a determined team in their Big 12 home opener after beginning conference play with a pair of road games last weekend, dropping a 1-0 battle at Colorado and fighting to a 3-3 tie at Texas Tech.


Lincoln - Cold temperatures and strong winds swept through the Lincoln area Friday afternoon, but that did not slow the Husker soccer team in its final non-conference game of the season, as Nebraska (6-2-3) defeated Green Bay, 3-1, at the Nebraska Soccer Field.

Freshman Morgan Marlborough broke a scoreless game at the 32:28 mark with her nation-leading 16th goal of the season to put herself in a tie with Christine Latham (2002) for the ninth-most single-season goals in school history.


Lincoln – The Nebraska softball team completed a perfect fall exhibition season on Sunday with a 3-2 nine-inning win over UNO on Sunday in the final game of the Big Red Fall Classic at Bowlin Stadium.

In Sunday’s first game, Nebraska blasted Bellevue, 20-0. The Huskers also won both games on Saturday to finish with a perfect 4-0 record at the Big Red Fall Classic. Combined with doubleheader sweeps of UNK and Wayne State last week, NU finished with an 8-0 fall record.

Hello Bay Area Huskers,

My name is Corrie and I work with First National Bank of Omaha. I'm passing along information about a new Husker sweepstakes that FNBO is doing to different Husker fan groups outside of NE.

First National is offering the chance for one lucky Husker fan to have the ultimate fan experience at the Nebraska vs. Oklahoma game on November 7th. The sweepstakes is called the FNBO Gameplan challenge, and the winner will get:

Four tickets (winner and three (3) guests) to the Nebraska vs. Oklahoma football game at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Nebraska on Saturday, November 7, 2009,
Pregame tour of Memorial Stadium,
