The excitement is in the air in Lincoln, Nebraska. It's football season once again and the #8 Cornhuskers look as if they're going to have a promising season. Zac Lee and Roy Helu Jr. are back to lead the offense. And Prince Amukamara and a guy who is flying under the radar, Jared Crick, are both returning to lead one of the nation's top defenses.
The Huskers will try to start off with a big win against the new to FBS, Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. The game is at 6 PM at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Nebraska. You can watch it on FSN Pay-per-view.
I think the Huskers should come out on top fairly easily in this one. This team isn't much different than the team that defeated the Arizona Wildcats in the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl last year. Sure, they don't have Ndomakong Suh to dominate the opposing Offensive front but they do have Jared Crick. Look for Crick to be a rising star within the next year. I think the Huskers Strong D will shutout WKU in their first FBS game every. The Offense should be able to put up some decent numbers, also. Huskers: 45 Hilltoppers: 0.
Either way, it's going to be an exciting season for the Huskers! Hopefully we'll see them in a BCS bowl this year, or even better, the National Championship. Go Big Red!
