Former Huskers help post-Harvey Houston; Nebraska’s PFF grades after Week 2

Nebraska football is the No. 1 topic in Big Red Rising every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Huskers sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Huskers football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Helping Houston

After Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston, a group of former Nebraska Huskers decided to help out. Land of 10’s Sean Keeler tells their story, and shares more on how they are helping Houston rebuild.

Nebraska’s PFF grades

Which Nebraska players have showed up on film during the first two weeks of the season? A quick look a the Huskers’ most recent Pro Football Focus grades answers that.

Building confidence

Cornerbacks coach Donte Williams knows the young defensive backs need to work on their confidence. That will be a big focus going forward, as the Huskers look to recover from the loss to Oregon.

Explaining that Oregon game

Did Oregon tire in the second half or did the Nebraska defense step it up? Could it have been a combination of both? We tackled that and more in the most recent Land of 10 Nebraska mailbag.

Ameer Abdullah’s take

What does former Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah think of current Huskers back Tre Bryant? He talked about that very topic (and much more) on the Jim Rome Show.

Third-down struggles

Nebraska’s offense struggled on third down against Oregon. How exactly did it all look? Hail Varsity’s Jacob Padilla broke down the tape.

Off to a fast start
