Bay Area Husker ENews 11-25-09

Hey Bay Area Husker Fans!

Happy Thanksgiving!

With the win over KSU last Saturday, the Huskers are Big 12 Northern Division Champs and are headed to the new Dallas Cowboy billion dollar stadium to play the Texas Longhorns for the Big 12 Championship game on Saturday December 5th. But first they have some business to take care of in Boulder when they face the Buffalos this Friday. Although I'm sure the team will get to enjoy a Thanksgiving turkey feast with all the trimmings at their hotel on Thursday, I predict the Huskers will be dining on some cold buffalo burgers on Friday. A 9-3 record is a great way for the Huskers to finish the regular season.

Lots of activity back in the homeland as folks get prepared to attend the Championship game, and many fans are starting to make plans for the possible bowl game the Huskers will be invited to attend. See the info below for tickets and travel opportunities. There is also an announcement from the Arizonans for Nebraska for an event they are hosting in February.

And while you are celebrating your holiday tomorrow, please take a moment to add our service men and women in your Thanksgiving Day prayers.

Go Big Red (White and Blue),


Watch Parties:

The Colorado game on Friday will be nationally televised on ABC with coverage starting at 12:30 Pacific time. Although many of you will probably be watching the game at home with family and friends, our watch sites will be open and available for our die-hard fans who want to make the trek to be with other Husker fans for the game. Enjoy!


A Cornhusker Thanksgiving tradition continues on Friday afternoon, as Nebraska travels to Boulder, Colo., for its regular-season finale against Colorado. The game marks the 20th straight season the Huskers have played on the day after Thanksgiving, including 14 meetings with Colorado.

Nebraska enters the game with an 8-3 overall record and a 5-2 record in Big 12 play, following a 17-3 triumph over Kansas State in Lincoln last Saturday night. The victory clinched the Big 12 North Division crown for Nebraska and secured a trip to the Dec. 5 Dr. Pepper Big 12 Championship Game in Arlington, Texas, where the Huskers will face third-ranked Texas.

Colorado enters the game with a 3-8 record and a 2-5 mark in Big 12 action. The Buffs have been solid at home in Big 12 play, winning two of three contests. Colorado is coming off a 31-28 loss at Oklahoma State last Thursday evening, and will have two more days than Nebraska to prepare for Friday's contest.

The Series

Nebraska holds a commanding 47-18-2 all-time edge in the series between the two schools, including a 22-10-2 advantage in Boulder. Nebraska has won six of the past eight meetings in Boulder, but did lose in its last trip to Folsom Field in 2007. This is the 14th straight season the schools have met on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

The Coaches

Nebraska: Bo Pelini (Ohio State, '90) owns an 18-7 record in his second season with the Huskers. Pelini guided Nebraska to nine wins in his first season as head coach, joining Bob Devaney, Tom Osborne and Frank Solich as the only Nebraska coaches to win nine games in their first season leading the Cornhuskers. Prior to taking over as the Huskers' head coach, Pelini served as defensive coordinator at NU, Oklahoma and LSU. Previously, he had stints as an NFL assistant with San Francisco, New England and Green Bay.

Colorado: Dan Hawkins (UC-Davis, '84) is in his fourth season as Colorado's head coach and owns a 16-32 record with the Buffaloes. Hawkins is in his 14th season overall as a head coach and has a 108-55-1 overall record. Hawkins is 1-2 against Nebraska.

Huskers Look to Continue Big 12 Road Success

Nebraska travels to Colorado on Friday to close out the regular season. A victory would allow Nebraska to complete Big 12 road play with a perfect 4-0 record. It would also mark Nebraska's fifth straight road victory in conference play, including a 56-28 win at Kansas State to close out the 2008 road slate.

- Nebraska has not won five straight Big 12 road games since winning its first eight road games when the Big 12 Conference was formed in 1996 and 1997. Nebraska won 19 straight league road games from 1992 to 1997 (Big Eight and Big 12).

- Nebraska has already posted three road wins for just the sixth time in the first 14 seasons of the Big 12
Conference. A win over Colorado would give Nebraska a 4-0 Big 12 road record for the first time since 1997.

- Each of the victories in Nebraska's four-game Big 12 road win streak has been by at least 10 points.

Huskers Capture Big 12 North, Set for Trip to Arlington

Nebraska has earned a trip to the Dr. Pepper Big 12 Championship Game for the fifth time in the 14-year history of the Big 12 Conference. The Huskers' 17-3 win over Kansas State improved Nebraska to 5-2 in conference play, 1 1/2 games ahead of second-place Kansas State. Nebraska will square off against third-ranked Texas in the league title game which is set for Dec. 5 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

- Nebraska has also played in the Big 12 title game in 1996, 1997, 1999 and 2006. The five Big 12 title game appearances are the most for any North Division school, and ties Texas for the second-most appearances in the game. Only Oklahoma (7) has played in more Big 12 title games. Nebraska is 2-2 in its four previous title game appearances winning the league crown in 1997 and 1999.

- In addition to its appearances in the conference title game, Nebraska has also tied for the North Division crown in 2001 and 2008.

- The Nebraska-Texas matchup will be the third in five conference title games for Nebraska (also 1996 and 1999). NU has also faced Texas A&M (1997) and Oklahoma (2006) in the Big 12 Championship Game.

Nebraska Looking for Fifth Consecutive Big 12 Win

Nebraska enters Friday's game with a four-game winning streak in Big 12 action, having defeated Baylor, Oklahoma, Kansas and Kansas State in successive weeks since a two-game losing streak in October. The four-game conference winning streak marks just the second time since 2001 that Nebraska has won four straight conference games.

- Nebraska's four straight wins matches its streak that included wins in its final three conference games last year and over Missouri in the 2009 Big 12 opener. However, this marks the first time Nebraska has won four straight Big 12 games in the same season since NU won its first seven Big 12 games in 2001.

They Remember What You Do in November

Last season, Nebraska clearly played its best football in the month of November, winning its final three regular season games against Kansas, Kansas State and Colorado.

In 2009, Nebraska has again hit its stride as fall begins to turn to winter. The Huskers have defeated Oklahoma, Kansas and Kansas State in November to capture the Big 12 North crown.

- Nebraska owns a 6-1 record in games played in November under Head Coach Bo Pelini. Nebraska's lone November loss under Pelini was at No. 4 Oklahoma on Nov. 1, 2008.

- NU is 8-1 under Pelini in games played on or after Nov. 1, including last year's Jan. 1 Gator Bowl victory and the 2003 Alamo Bowl win over Michigan State when Pelini was the interim head coach.

Nebraska's six-game November win streak is the program's longest since winning 19 straight games in November from 1992 to 1998.

Nebraska Looks to Resume Success in Boulder

Nebraska owns a 20-9-2 advantage in games played at Folsom Field. Despite a 65-51 loss to Colorado in Boulder in 2007, NU has had good success in Boulder, winning six of the past eight meetings in the Rockies.

The Huskers' success in Boulder has been due in large part to outstanding offensive production. The Huskers have topped 30 points in each of the past five meetings in Boulder. Overall, Nebraska has scored 30 or more points in eight of the past 10 meetings between the two schools, including at least 37 points in the past three meetings. The teams have combined for 187 points in the past two meetings, and the winning team has scored at least 26 points in the past 10 matchups.

Nebraska, Buffs Continue Post-Turkey Day Tradition

Nebraska and Colorado have met the day after Thanksgiving each year since the start of Big 12 Conference play in 1996. In the 13 meetings since the series moved to a Friday date, Nebraska holds a 9-4 advantage, including a 4-2 edge in Boulder. Last season's 40-31 Nebraska victory was indicative of the series which has produced a number of close results on Thanksgiving weekend.

- In the 13 meetings on Thanksgiving Friday, eight of the games have been decided by nine points or less, with Nebraska owning a 7-1 record in those contests.

- For Nebraska, Friday's game marks the 20th straight season Nebraska has played on the day after Thanksgiving. NU met Oklahoma the final six seasons of Big Eight play (1990-95) on the day after Thanksgiving, posting a 5-1 record in those games.

-This year's game marks the first time Nebraska has played on the Friday after Thanksgiving without a bye week since playing at Oklahoma on Thanksgiving Friday in 1973, six days after playing at Kansas State.

- Nebraska's post-Thanksgiving game has been nationally televised by ABC each of the past 19 years (1991-2009).

HUSKERS PUT FULL FOCUS ON BUFFS...(from Pelini Press conference)

Lincoln - Nebraska Coach Bo Pelini met the media on Monday at Memorial Stadium to discuss the Huskers' upcoming Big 12 regular-season finale at Colorado on Friday in Boulder.

The Huskers, who clinched the Big 12 North Division crown with a win over Kansas State on Saturday, head to Folsom Field with an 8-3 overall record and a 5-2 Big 12 mark. The Buffaloes enter the game with a 3-8 overall mark, including a 2-5 league record. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. with live television coverage by ABC.

Although the Buffaloes don't bring a glossy record into the game, Pelini said the Huskers will be expecting the Buffs' best shot. He also said he expects his players to play hard for the Husker fans in the western part of the state.

"I haven’t been a part of this program for a real long time, but I know this is a game special to our fans and I think it’s special to the Colorado fans. It's two states sitting side by side. It’s very special to our great fans out in Western Nebraska because they are right there in the Colorado zone and they want bragging rights. They make a lot of sacrifices in driving a long way every week to come see us play, and we have to have their back on this end when we play Colorado. That’s all part of the deal.”

He also said that Colorado was the only thing on the minds of the Nebraska coaches and players this week.

“I know what we have in front of us. I know it’s going to be a challenge. I know we have to play good football. I fully expect to go win this football game. Texas, that means nothing to me right now. The only thing that matters to this football team is Colorado. I told our people in the offices, the coaching staff, I don’t want to hear about plans, about travel plans, about tickets, or anything else about the Big 12 title game. That means nothing. That time will come. Our full focus is on Colorado.”


Lincoln - Lots of defense. Success on special teams, and enough offense to notch another win. That was the recipe for Nebraska's eighth win of the season, as the Huskers earned a trip to the Big 12 Championship Game with a 17-3 victory over Kansas State on Saturday night at Memorial Stadium.

Playing in front of 85,988 fans and an ESPN national television audience, Nebraska captured the Big 12 North Division title by beating the Wildcats with a suffocating defense led by All-America candidate Ndamukong Suh. The defensive tackle, playing in his final game as a Husker at Memorial Stadium, registered nine tackles, including two tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, a pair of pass breakups and a quarterback hurry.

Suh was far from the only senior who made an impact on Senior Night at Memorial Stadium. Senior safety Larry Asante had a huge night with a team-leading 10 tackles to go along with an interception and a huge hit to force fumble and keep Kansas State out of the end zone early in the third quarter. Senior linebacker Phillip Dillard added eight tackles, including a nine-yard sack and a forced fumble of his own to stop a KSU second-half drive.

The big plays by the Blackshirts preserved a 14-point win that included some big plays by the Husker offense as well.

After leading 10-3 at the half, Nebraska wasted little time in making it a two touchdown margin in the second half. On NU's opening drive, Roy Helu Jr. carred two times for eight yards to set up a 3rd-and-2 at the NU 38. On the second play, KSU safety Tysyn Hartman, who in the second quarter intercepted a Zac Lee pass in the end zone to stop a Husker threat, went down with an injury.

With Hartman off the field, Lee tested the Wildcat secondary and connected with Niles Paul on a 47-yard strike to give the Huskers a first down at the KSU 14. Helu burst through the right side of the defense on the next play and sprinted into the end zone to give the Huskers a 17-3 lead just 1:39 into the third quarter.

Suh and company did the rest for the Huskers, while Helu continued his climb in the Nebraska rushing record book. Helu finished the night with 26 carries for 95 yards to become the 25th Husker in history to rush for 2,000 or more career yards. Helu also posted the 29th 1,000-yard rushing season in NU history. Helu heads into the regular-season finale at Colorado on Friday with 2,071 career yards, including with 1,057 yards on the season.

Kansas State tried to answer with a quick march of its own on the ensuing driving, pushing the ball to the NU 13. KSU quarterback Grant Gregory then hit Keithen Valentine across the middle, who appeared headed in for a touchdown, but Asante delivered a crushing hit at the 1, forcing a fumble that was recovered by Prince Amukamara at the NU 5 with 8:52 left in the third quarter.

The Huskers were unable to move and the Wildcats took over again at the NU 45. KSU again pushed into the NU red zone, but the Blackshirts held and Josh Cherry missed a 32-yard field goal with 5:26 left in the quarter. The Wildcats were able to move the ball in the second half, but never threatened to score again, as the Blackshirts ended their home season without allowing a second-half point in the final three home games.

Kansas State finished with 293 yards of total offense, including 140 yards on the ground and 153 through the air. Nebraska managed just 267 total yards, and notched just one first down after its opening drive of the second half. Lee completed 13-of-19 passes for 166 yards with one touchdown and one interception for the Huskers, while Gregory connected on just 11-of-31 passes for 126 yards and an interception for the Wildcats. KSU's Daniel Thomas led all rushers with 99 yards on 19 carries.

Paul led the Husker receivers with four catches for 82 yards, while McNeill added three catches for 26 yards and a score. In all, seven Husker receivers had at least one catch, including freshman I-back Rex Burkhead, who made his return to the field for the Huskers for the first time since the Missouri game. Burkhead had one catch for nine yards to go along with six carries for 17 yards in his return from a foot injury.


Senior safety Larry Asante and junior placekicker Alex Henery have been named Big 12 Players of the Week, announced Monday Morning by the league office.

The award is the first for Asante and the fourth for a Nebraska defensive player this season (Suh vs. MU, Crick vs. Baylor, O'Hanlon vs. Oklahoma). Henery's honor is his second of 2009 (Virginia Tech) and the third of his career (Colorado, 2008).

Asante made a season-high 10 tackles, caused a fumble and intercepted a pass in Nebraska's 17-3 North Division clinching win over Kansas State. The senior safety spearheaded a defensive effort that limited its sixth opponent in seven home games to nine points or fewer. His second-quarter interception inside the Nebraska 20 secured a 10-3 halftime lead. He then forced a fumble at the Nebraska 1-yard line in the third quarter as NU maintained its 17-3 advantage.

Henery punted six times for a 45.5 average, made his only fi eld goal attempt and both PATs in Nebraska's win over Kansas State. He pinned K-State deep in its own territory on two occasions with punts downed at the KSU 1 and 3-yard lines. Henery leads the Big 12 in punts inside the 20 with 22 through 11 games, including 15 in Big 12 play. Of his 22 punts inside the 20, 13 have been inside the 10, including seven pinning the opponent inside its own 3-yard line. He remained perfect on the season in PATs and improved to 16-of-19 on field goals.


A total of 22 Nebraska football players have been honored as members of the 2009 Academic All-Big 12 Football Team, the conference office announced on Tuesday.

The group of Huskers is highlighted by sophomore defensive back Austin Cassidy and redshirt freshman linebacker Sean Fisher, who were each nominated with a 4.0 grade-point average. Fisher has a perfect cumulative grade-point average, while Cassidy earned a perfect 4.0 grade-point average in the two previous semesters. Fisher and Cassidy were two of just three student-athletes in the Big 12 Conference nominated with a perfect 4.0 grade-point average.

Nebraska's 22 selections included 15 first-team choices and seven second-team selections. The 22 overall honorees ranked second in the conference, trailing only Texas' 23 honorees. Nominated by each institution's director of student-athlete support services and the media relations offices, the football academic all-league squad consisted of 101 first-team members combined with 68 on the second team. First-team members consist of those who have maintained a 3.20 or better GPA, and the second team are those who have a 3.00 to 3.19 GPA.

To qualify student-athletes must maintain a 3.00 GPA or higher either cumulative or the two previous semesters and must have participated in 60 percent of their team's scheduled contests. Freshmen and transfers are not eligible in their first year of academic residence. Senior student-athletes who have participated for a minimum of two years and meet all the criteria except percent of participation are also eligible.

Among Nebraska's honorees, senior wide receiver Wes Cammack and senior defensive back Matt O'Hanlon were each honored for a third season. Six other Huskers picked up academic all-conference accolades for the second time, including first-teamers Andy Christensen, Thomas Grove, Ryan Hill, Marcel Jones and Adi Kunalic, along with second-team selection Lance Thorell.

Both awards will be presented on Thursday, Dec. 10 at the Home Depot College Football Awards Show in Orlando, Fla. The show will be televised by ESPN.

The Outland Trophy is presented annually to the best interior lineman in college football. He is joined by Oklahoma State offensive tackle Russell Okung and Idaho offensive guard Mike Iupati as finalists. Nebraska has previously won eight Outland Trophies, most recently Aaron Taylor in 1997.

The Chuck Bednarik Award is presented annually by the Maxwell Football Club to the Outstanding Defensive Player of the Year. Suh is joined among the finalists by Alabama nose guard Terrence Cody and Florida linebacker Brandon Spikes.

Earlier on Monday, Suh was named the Lott Trophy IMPACT Defensive Player of the Week for the third time this season, becoming the first player in Lott Trophy history to earn the weekly award three times in one season. Finalists for the Lott Trophy will be announced later this week.

The 6-4, 300-pound Suh is also one of four finalists for the Rotary Lombardi Award and one of five finalists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy. Suh leads Nebraska with 65 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 20 quarterback hurries, 10 pass breakups and three blocked kicks, while adding 6.5 sacks.




Lincoln - A total of 21 former Huskers saw action during Week 11 of the 2009 NFL season.

Former Huskers Demorrio Williams and Mike Brown led Kansas City’s defensive attack in an overtime upset-win over Pittsburgh, 27-24. Williams led the Chiefs in tackles with 10, including nine solo stops, while Brown was right behind him with nine total tackles. Brown also added a key 13-yard sack of Ben Roethlisberger late in the fourth quarter on third-and-7 that forced a Pittsburgh punt with 2:27 left in regulation, and the game tied at 24-24.

Zackary Bowman continued to play at a high caliber from his cornerback position for the Bears’ defense, as the former Husker intercepted a Donovan McNabb pass in the second quarter on Sunday Night Football. Even with a strong defensive effort, the Bears fell at home to the Eagles, 20-24. The pick was Bowman’s fourth of the season and marked the third straight game he has recorded an interception. In just his second year in the league, Bowman now has five career interceptions.

After starting the year with six straight losses, the Tennessee Titans have now won four straight following a win over the Houston Texans, 20-17, on Monday Night Football. Former Husker Kyle Vanden Bosch had two tackles for the Titans’ defense and added a fourth-quarter sack of the Texans’ Matt Schaub for a five-yard loss.

In that match, NU hit .433 as a team, marking the second time the Huskers have hit over .400 on the season. Kori Cooper’s 11 kills led a balanced offense that saw three players in double figures. Tara Mueller and Hannah Werth chipped 10 kills apiece, while Sydney Anderson dished out 44 assists. NU also held Kansas to just .085 hitting and now has held its last two opponents under .100 hitting.


Lawrence, Kan. – The ninth-ranked Nebraska volleyball team put together one of its best performances of the season, sweeping Kansas, 3-0 (25-15, 25-12, 25-18) Saturday afternoon

NU TICKETS FOR BIG 12 CHAMPIONSHIP GAME GONE IN 15 MINUTES...(this news makes the article that came out earlier today (below) moot!
