Top targets

Which recruiting targets will be high on Nebraska’s list for the 2019 class? Land of 10’s Chris Bumbaca broke it all down.


Fan of the Olympics? Whether you are or not, you may have noticed Nebraska and Great Britain are sharing the #GBR hashtag right now. Makes things a little more interesting.

A future visit

Outside linebacker Owen Pappoe is one of the nation’s top prospects in the 2019 class. He also plans to take an official visit to Nebraska later this year.

Making an impact

If recruiting continues to improve in the Big Ten West, it could mean Wisconsin loses its strong grip on that side of the conference.

Sammy the MVP

Oversleep and miss a recent Big Red Rising? No worries. We have all our past editions  here.
