Super Bowl Prediction!

Today is the big day for NFL football. It's the Super Bowl today!!  I can remember back to the first Super Bowl in 1966 when the Packers beat the Chiefs 35-10. It was the first time the NFL played the old AFL for the Championship.

Bart Starr was the quarterback for the Packers. He was like a 15th round draft pick who was very good. I can remember the receivers for the Packers. They were Bowd Dowler, who go injured in the game and Max McGee. McGee caught passes for 138 for two touchdowns. Jim Taylor was the main running back for the Packers as Paul Hornung was hurt. The Super Bowl seemed to be a bigger deal then. Maybe I have just seen too many Super Bowls!

This year we have two very good teams playing, New England is the best team in the AFC and Philadelphia was the best team in the NFC until their quarterback Carson Wentz got hurt. They still may be the best with Nick Foles!  I look to this game as even. Both teams are very good!

Do you remember when the Huskers beat Arizona 33-0 in the Holiday Bowl in 2009. Nick Foles was 9-29 in passing for 48 yards with an interception. He also had a -19 yards rushing.

We have two Huskers playing in the Super Bowl. Nate Gerry plays for the Eagles on special teams and Rex Burkhead is a running back for the Patriots.

Some people don't like Tom Brady, Brady was a backup quarterback on the 1997 Michigan team that shared the national championship with Nebraska.

My first thought was that the Eagles would win this because of their defense but after thinking about the game I am going with the Patriots in a close one.

New England wins in a last second field goal.

New England 24
Philadephia 23

No. 11 Maryland snapped Nebraska women's five-game winning streak this afternoon 64-57. Kaila Charles finished with 25 points and 16 rebounds for Maryland. Freshman Taylor Kissinger came off the bench to score 18 points for Nebraska.

Nebraska announced that Gothenburg's Bennett Folkers is walking on at Nebraska.

I think Nebraska is going to get a commitment from Maurice Washington on Signing Day Wednesday. Washington may be the best recruit we get since Lawrence Phillips as far as football talent.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
