No other running back in college football comes close to Taylor’s domination over the past two years, and the 2019 season presents an opportunity for the New Jersey native to cement his place among the greatest to ever play at Wisconsin — or anywhere else, for that matter.
INDIANAPOLIS – The biggest problem with analyzing NFL exhibition games is that while the drop off from first to second stringers in the NFL is significant, the gap between key backups and third and fourth stringers is huge.
Second-year leaps are quite common in college football. For example, Nick Saban went 7-6 in his first year at Alabama, and followed with an 12-2 campaign. Just recently, Texas’ Tom Herman jumped from 7-6 to 10-4. Nebraska is hoping for a similar ascension in Year 2 under Scott Frost, who knows a little something about second-year leaps (See UCF, 2017). This year’s Husker Extra college football preview is themed around the No. 2. It’s a prominent figure throughout the pages. It also could be a noticeable figure for NU in 2019.
You tend to listen closely to Scott Frost when he discusses the coaching profession.
Parker Gabriel takes a closer look at the Huskers.
Clemson head strength coach Joey Batson has studied Husker Power extensively. He’s watched videotapes and read books. After all, Batson in 1997 succeeded Gary Wade, who had worked at Nebraska under Boyd Epley. Batson knows full well the importance of training facilities, and it's time Nebraska moves back toward the head of the pack in that area.
Nebraska's history with the two-point conversion is a lot like the two-point conversion itself — kind of wild, full of drama and usually memorable for all parties involved.
Pertinent factoids, words and numbers from the Cats' setback against the Rainbow Warriors.
Adrian Martinez may be just a sophomore, but he's already a Nebraska captain. The standout quarterback earned that designation over the weekend along with teammates Mohamed Barry, Matt Farniok and Darrion Daniels, the program announced Saturday night after its Boneyard Bash event.
There are two sides to every story, or in this case, every season. Our top 25 teams have 25 bright spots, and 25 weak spots. Well, maybe 23. We're still looking for ways to pick apart Clemson and Alabama, but to no avail. That said, let's dive into the Journal Star's preseason top 25.
Barrett Ruud didn’t have it easy when he played football for Nebraska — back when two-a-day practices in full pads were the norm — but he knows it was even worse before that, like when his dad, Tom, played for the Huskers in the 1970s.
The Star's Michael Lev recaps Arizona's 45-38 loss to Hawaii and what this means for the Wildcats moving forward.
The Huskers open regular-season action at 11 a.m. next Saturday against South Alabama at Memorial Stadium. In the four-plus weeks since NU started practicing, some questions have been answered and some remain. As such, here’s a look back at what we’ve learned and what’s still to be settled as football finally nears its return to Lincoln.
Arizona consensus All-American running back Ka’Deem Carey is back in Tucson this weekend to make an appearance at the opening of his mother Tisha’s “Mama Carey’s Kitchen” at North Park Avenue and East Sixth Street. Carey took advantage of a bye in the schedule of the Calgary Stampeders to be at the event; he signed autographs Saturday. After breaking into Calgary’s starting lineup last month, gaining 204 yards, Carey suffered a leg injury on July 25 and has missed the Stampeders’ last three games.
When Tucson attorney and Nova Homes Loan Arizona Bowl co-founder Ali Farhang tried to arrange an Oakland Raiders game — or full schedule — in Tucson, he got the NFL team’s attention, but ultimately was not successful. The Raiders reworked an agreement to play in Oakland in 2019, but the NFL did give the Raiders permission to hold a Week 3 preseason game elsewhere. The NFL allowed the Raiders to choose from sites in Santa Clara, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Reno and, of all places, Winnipeg, Manitoba. So the Raiders played in Winnipeg on Thursday. It didn’t go so well. Because of holes left by goal posts in the end zone of the longer CFL dimensions, the field was reduced to 80 yards for the game. It’s probably a good thing Arizona Stadium wasn’t chosen as the site for the game. Thursday night thunder and lightning storms in Tucson canceled a UA soccer game and a CDO-Flowing Wells football game.
