Nebraska Cornhuskers

The Nebraska Cornhuskers are coming off a solid 2012 season, however you can bet that Nebraska wanted to end things on a higher note than they did. Nebraska fell to the Georgia Bulldogs in the Capitol One Bowl on January 1st, but their most crushing defeat of the season came at the hands of the Wisconsin Badgers in the Big Ten Championship game, falling to the Badgers 70-31. This season the Huskers should have one of the elite offenses of the Big Ten Conference, and if the Blackshirts can rebound after a shaky 2012 campaign, this team could once again make it’s way to the Big Ten title game. The Huskers have one of the most electric quarterbacks in the Big Ten, if not the nation in Taylor Martinez. Martinez is just as much, if not more of a threat with his feet than his arm, which makes the play Read More
