2017 Nebraska Season Preview
In 2015, the Nebraska Cornhuskers finished the season 4th in the Big Ten West division after many close losses. The Cornhuskers qualified for a bowl game even though their regular season ended with only 5 wins; they played against UCLA in the Foster Farms Bowl and were able to win, 37-29, ending their season on a high note. Coming into the 2016 season, it will be Mike Riley’s second season as head coach. Quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr.’s ability to complete efficient passing and decision -making will continue to be an asset to Nebraska this season. Assisting Armstrong in 2016 is a group of talented receivers, Jordan Westerkamp, Alonzo Moore and Brandon Reilly. An area of the Cornhusker’s team that will need improvement in 2016 will be the defensive line after losing 4 tackles including standouts, Maliek Collins and Vincent Valentine. The Nebraska Cornhusker’s 2016 schedule shows them facing off against their toughest Big Ten opponents on the road against Wisconsin, Ohio State and Iowa. Whether you are planning on cheering on the Cornhuskers at home games or supporting Nebraska on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all Nebraska Cornhuskers’ tickets, including home and away games.
Nebraska vs. Oklahoma
The state of Kansas separates Oklahoma and Nebraska, but not much else does. OU holds the bragging rights thus far into the rivalry that was recently made dormant by the Cornhuskers move to the Big Ten, but Nebraksa put a pounding on the Sooners throughout the 90s. Only one time in the last 45 contests they played did both teams go in unranked. When this game is picked back up again, it’s a college football fans dream to watch it in person.
Nebraska in the College Football Playoff, Bowl Games, and Big Ten Championship
If the fourth most wins in NCAA FBS History and one of the handful of teams with over 800 wins doesn’t impress you, then I don’t know what will. The Nebraska Cornhuskers belong on the Mount Rushmore of College Football as they have played in over 50 bowl games in their school’s history including a National Championship appearance in 2001 vs. the Miami Hurricanes. The Cornhuskers have captured 46 Conference Titles solidifying their greatness in the college game. Ticketcity offers tickets to all college football bowl games and the Big 10 Conference Championship Game.
Nebraska Cornhuskers Football at Memorial Stadium Address: One Stadium Dr, Lincoln, Nebraska, 68588
Nebraska plays their home games at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Nebraska. The stadium has a capacity of more than 84,000 and has had a sellout crowd in more consecutive games than any other college football stadium (288 at the time of this writing). Visitors to a Cornhusker game at Memorial will quickly understand what they mean by “a Sea of Red”. The Nebraska Cornhuskers home bench is on the Memorial Stadium sideline with sections 1-11. Memorial Stadium parking information is covered in our Cornhuskers event guide.
2015 Nebraska Football Preview
The 2015 season is a year of new beginnings for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Gone is Bo Pelini and his controversy, and in is Mike Riley. Riley brings with him new offensive schemes, and a proven record of turning programs around. Nebraska won 9 games last season, but lost stellar running back Ameer Abdullah in the offseason. The Cornhuskers 2015 offense will rely much more on quarterback Tommy Armstrong who has proven to one of the most effective scramblers in college football. The Huskers will also have possibly the best secondary in the Big Ten, with the unit starting 4 seniors, including standout safeties Byerson Cockrell, and Nathan Gerry. Nebraska made a statement by firing Bo Pelini, that even a series of 9 win seasons are not good enough to fulfill the expectations in Lincoln. The Cornhuskers have the talent on their 2015 team to be able to compete for a Big Ten West division championship. Top games on the Nebraska Cornhuskers 2015 schedule include at Miami, and at home against Wisconsin and Michigan State.
2014 Nebraska Football Preview
The Taylor Martinez era at Nebraska came to an end after the 2013 season. The Cornhuskers come into 2014 with what feels like a completely new team. Big Red lost 16 contributing players to graduation or the NFL draft. But that is not to say that Bo Pelini and company are not looking forward to the 2014 campaign. The Huskers have an offensive line that will start 5 upper classman. First year starting quarterback Tommy Armstrong will have plenty of help from running back Ameer Abdullah who is one of the Big 10’s most talented ground threats. The biggest question mark coming into the season will be a defensive front 7 that starts 4 sophomores. An out of conference matchup with Miami promises to be one of the most exciting matchup of the early season. Nebraska’s fate in the Big 10 this season will be determined by games at Michigan State, and at Wisconsin.
2013 Nebraska Football Preview
Bo Pelini and the Nebraska Cornhuskers have been the model of consistency in college football and after another 10-win season, the Cornhuskers look to make a jump in the national conversation in 2013. Dual-threat quarterback Taylor Martinez returns for his senior season after combining for 33 touchdowns as a junior. The potential Heisman Trophy candidate will continue to be the catalyst on the offensive side of the ball, but running back Ameer Abdullah and receiver Kenny Bell should take pressure off of Martinez and form one of the most prolific offenses in college football. Memorial Stadium, a “Cathedral of College Football” continues to be one of the most feared places to play in college football with a sellout streak of over 320 games. Bo Pelini’s team will host Illinois, Northwestern, and Iowa in 2013 for what should be another exciting season in Lincoln, Nebraska.
2011 Nebraska Football Preview
This is the first year for Nebraska in the Big Ten, and it would be hard to find fault if Bo Pellini and his crew have a tough transitional year. However, it’s mostly about learning how to deal with new intra-conference foes, but one person’s Oklahoma is another’s Ohio State. The Cornhuskers know this and are ready for the fight.
Sophomore Taylor Martinez wowed the country early in 2010, but injuries slowed down his torrid pace. He’s back, however, and spring practices are looking good for him. Another important returning cog is running back junior Rex Burkhead, who ran for 951 yards and seven scores in 2010.
Defensively, the linebacking corps is being anchored by senior Lavonte David, who was a unanimous All-Big 12 choice. In the secondary, the Cornhuskers are looking to replace NFL defections with returning senior starter Alfonzo Dennard, who led the team in picks in 2010.
2010 Nebraska Football Preview
Nebraska was seconds away from a Big 12 championship a year ago, and thanks to another stout defense, fans in Lincoln should be treated to a team that may not only compete for a conference championship, but a national title as well.
For a team that is largely focused around defense, offensive output is a secondary concern. The Cornhuskers managed significant success in 2009 despite finishing 101st in the nation in passing offense. Things will not change too much as 1000-yard rusher Roy Helu, Jr. returns to provide the bulk of the offense, and three starters return from the offensive line.
Although Nebraska lost Heisman Trophy candidate nose tackle Ndamukong Suh to the NFL, the Cornhusker defense, which ranked number one in scoring last year, should not suffer any drop off. All-Big 12 defensive tackle junior Jared Crick should provide constant pressure on the quarterback, and will be joined by senior Pierre Allen on a solid line.
In his two years, coach Bo Pelini has gotten Nebraska back to where many of their fans believe they should be - in the top 10 and contending for a national title, and this year's team will go as far as their defense can carry them.
2009 Nebraska Football Preview
2009 is year two for Nebraska Cornhuskers Head Coach Bo Pelini. The Cornhusker faithful have high hopes that Coach Pelini will be able to build upon a successful first season. Nebraska finished 10-4 in 2008, Pelini's maiden voyage, including a huge Gator Bowl victory over Clemson. Much of the 2009 season will depend on how well Pelini gets Nebraska's famous "Black Shirts" defense playing. If the Husker defense lives up to expectations and projected QB Zac Lee gets the O clicking, then watch out for the 2009 Nebraska Cornhuskers.
2008 Nebraska Football Preview
The Nebraska Cornhusker football team is the most successful program in college football in the last 50 years. While the team has fallen on some hard times in the last few seasons, it appears to be back on track with legendary coach Tom Osborne as Athletic Director and Bo Pelini at coach. The Cornhusker fan base and the winning tradition in Lincoln will make it unlikely that Nebraska's woes will last. Memorial Stadium will be rocking with Husker fans expecting a big turnaround, a shot at the Big 12 Championship, and a bowl bid in 2008.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers welcome back Bo Pelini as head coach for the team, after serving one year at Defensive Coordinator for the team in 2003. From 2005-2007, Pelini served as Defensive Coordinator for the LSU Tigers, helping form their defensive unit to a national championship device. The offensive unit for the Cornhuskers will be bolstered by the return of Marlon Lucky, who rushed for over 1,000 yards in 2007. Lucky is currently on the watch list as a favorite to win the Maxwell Award. The biggest problem facing the Cornhuskers offense is finding replacements for wide receivers Maurice Purify and Terrence Nunn. Otherwise, the Huskers are going to have a field day moving the ball around on the ground.
The defense is going to need some work this season, hence Bo Pelini returning. He made magic happen for LSU, keeping the defense ranked third or better in the nation for three years. As long as the Husker defense improves, and the offense plays ball as well as they did last year, you can expect a couple of bowl games from this team. Get out and root for this Nebraska football team, and help them to a North division Championship!
