Change of channel
If you rely on Comcast to watch Big Ten Network, things may be changing depending on where you live. While Comcast will be keep the channel in markets that have Big Ten teams, many fans will likely still be affected nationwide.
Ideal running back
Who is the ideal running back for position coach Ryan Held and coach Scott Frost’s offense? It’s a track star and a home run hitter.
If Frost was interested in Arizona quarterback Brandon Dawkins as a possible graduate transfer, that ship sailed on Thursday. Dawkins committed to the Indiana Hoosiers.
DaiShon Neal would like a bigger role on Nebraska’s defensive line, so he’s been working hard and bulking up. That hasn’t slowed him down, though.
A beautiful day
Nebraska football practiced in Memorial Stadium Thursday, which made for much-needed time outside before winter weather is expected in Lincoln.
