Cheat Sheet: Bye Week

October 05, 2016

Ah, the bye week. It’s a time to rest and relax before Nebraska kicks off the next half of its season. That doesn’t mean college football takes a break though. While we typically provide a cheat sheet for all things Huskers, why not chat about everything else going on this weekend (and maybe also a little Huskers, too)?

Get prepared for a Saturday without Nebraska football with our bye week cheat sheet.

Big Ten Game to Watch – Indiana @ Ohio State

: Ohio Stadium, Columbus, Ohio

: Saturday, October 8, at 2:30 p.m. CT


Want a preview of what Nebraska can expect from Indiana after the bye week? The Hoosiers face off against the Ohio State Buckeyes Saturday afternoon, which will provide a fair amount of insight into both teams. Considering Nebraska has yet to face either (but both are coming up on the Huskers’ schedule), this is definitely the game to watch in the Big Ten.

Here’s your game preview:

Oh, and here’s Indiana taking on the whisper challenge. Team communication!

Fun Facts

>> Zack Darlington apparently gets manicures and can hold for kicker Drew Brown with one hand. Are those fun facts? They feel like it.

>> Nebraska senior softball player Lotte Sjulin was honored as the Huskers’ homecoming queen last Saturday.

>> Nebraska’s 18-play, 75-yard drive that took 10:42 off the clock was the longest drive by plays since a 20-play drive at Colorado in 2005. It was also the longest drive by time since at least 2000.

What They’re Saying

Head coach Mike Riley on wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp and tight end Cethan Carter:

“It’s going to be a little while before we can tell exactly when they’ll be back.”
