So. Miss and UCLA aren’t too shabby for OOC games even if UCLA will be a bit down next year while they adjust to their new coach. While Idaho State will be a lay-up,at least Nebraska fans will treat them with respect and courtesy.
I think the Huskers will be in much better shape for the 2nd year of the Big 10 season….

Actually outside of Idaho St. this a sneaky-tough schedule – by today’s standards – w/ always-solid Southern Miss, @ UCLA, and last year’s 10-win Arkansas St. team.

If they would’ve chose NDSU instead of Idaho St., then they’d really not be taking it easy.

Agreed Tim…though Freeze quitting after just one year will leave Ark. State in a mess…and just heard WVU just signed the DC of the Red Wolves. But UCLA and So. Miss will present a solid test for the Blackshirts…
