If the Royals when on Tuesday they tie for the most consecutive wins in a playoff with 10.  The other two teams were both Yankee squads. The Royals are hot and everybody is peaking at the right time.

Nebraska football playoffs
Gretna is the only team in Class B that is unbeaten. The top four teams in Class B are all in the same district. Three of those teams can make it to the playoffs. The top four teams are Gretna, Elkhorn, Omaha Scutt, and Elkhorn South.

Omaha North and Millard North are bot undefeated in Class A.

The C-1 playoffs should be very exciting with four teams undefeated and then you have a team like GI Central Catholic who can beat anybody at 6-2 and rated 8th.

Eight Man-1 has seven undefeated teams yet.

Lee Barfknecht has Nebraska rated third in the Big 10 behind Michigan St. and Ohio St. Probably a pretty fair rating right now.

Rutgers, our opponent this week is 5-2 and he has them rated 9th . Nebraska is a 17 point favorite over Rutgers.

Mississippi St. No. 1!!! Can't even believe it.

Nebraska has moved up to 16th.

BTN's special documentary "Unbeaten" is absolutely one of the greatest shows I have seen. It is on Brook Berringer and it is so well done.

I see Barrett Ruud is helping coach the defense for the Cornhuskers. I am sure he is a huge asset to the program.

Right now Michigan St. 3-0 (East) and Minnesota 3-0 (West) lead the divisions of the Big 10.

UNK won their second game of the year beating Lindenwood 31-13. It marked the 100th career win for Coach Darrell Morris.

How good is DeMornay Pierson-El. He is so fast.

Ameer Abdullah is now the No. 2 all time rusher at Nebraska. He has 4,001 yards and just passed Ahman Green with 3,880.

Could it be possible that Shavon Shields is as good or better than Terran Petteway? They are both very good.

Walter Pitchford will be key to Nebraska taking it to the next level this year. When he played well last year, Nebraska won.

NU volleyball: Illini finally beat Huskers : Latest Husker News

NU volleyball: Illini finally beat Huskers : Latest Husker News

Great article on Brook Berringer!


Royals and the Huskers!

First of all let's talk about those Royals. They have swept everything so far. They are winning with a little bit of everything!  But if they have a lead after five or six innings, well their relievers are the best in baseball. They are amazing.

Tuesday night at 7:07 the Royals start the World Series against the San Fransisco Giants. The Royals have James Shields (15-8) on the mound and the Giants have Madison Bumgarner (20-11).
So can the Royals continue to roll. I think so. They may not sweep but they will be very competitive.

The first two games are at home on Tuesday and Wednesday. Then they go to San Fran for three games on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. If needed, they go back to KC for games Tuesday and Wednesday, the 28th and 29th.

Millard North knocked off Papillion South last night 24-21 to go 8-0. Millard North is coached by one of the best coaches in Nebraska, Fred Petito.

Gretna beat Elkhorn last night in a game of unbeatens 17-14. Reserve QB Chase Templeton drove 81 yards in 8 plays in the final two minutes to win the game. Gretna is the only undefeated team left in Class B.

The No. 9 team in Class C-1 beat Holdrege last night 42-7. Hastings SC lost to Sutton last night in C-2 action. Hastings SC was No. 2.

Now to college football, Iowa vs. Maryland is a pretty big game today for the Big 10. It starts at 11 am on ESPN2. Maryland is favored by five points! An interesting game in the Big 10 is Rutgers at Ohio St. with Ohio St favored by 22 points. Rutgers is 5-1.

Texas is only 2-4 this year. I wonder if they will win six to be bowl eligible.

After the game tonight BTN is featuring a Brook Berringer documentary. It's called Unbeaten:The life of Brook Berringer. It is supposed to be very good and impactful as Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald put it. I am very excited to see it. Hope you do too.

So now to the Nebraska game vs. Northwestern. This is a series of very close games with Nebraska coming out the top in last second heroics. The last three games they have played, Nebraska has come out on top by a total of seven points. In 2011, Northwestern beat then No. 9 Nebraska 28-25. Nebraska has had a week to heal and that is huge. They do have David Santos back. Brandon Reilly is finally practicing which is the first time this season. Kenney Bell is back.

But we play at Northwestern and they are now playing pretty well. They are very capable of beating Nebraska. Nebraska is 5-1 and Northwestern is 3-3.

So this week will Nebraska be back to running the football over 300 yards or will this be the running attack that Michigan St. stopped cold. My guess is we will run the ball pretty well.

Nebraska plays well after a Bye week and this should be no exception. Here's this week's prediction!

Nebraska 31 Northwestern 21
