After what we say in person at the UCONN game, I'm expecting another one too close for comfort. Didn't really breathe a sigh of relief yesterday until after time expired.
Some interesting stats on this site, but o/u not yet available.

If Corbin and our safeties are back - I am good with this. Home is home and I think our first away game is always going to cause concern and then with Corbin out - yikes. Have to believe UConn played above themselves yesterday given all the comments and their Frosh QB actually gave them a spark (along with his turnovers).
I love the mindset here, but even Penn State last year wasn't close to a sell out, at least from actual attendance.
Got me thinking, would Nebraska being undefeated going into this game draw a bigger crowd locally or the fact that they already lost so its increases the possibility of winning the game draw more people? Just a thought
