Nebraska football is the No. 1 topic in Big Red Rising every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Huskers sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Huskers football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Peach Bowl prep

Nebraska coach Scott Frost is back in Orlando helping Central Florida prep for the Jan. 1 Peach Bowl. How is he making it work? Frost answered that and more at his first Peach Bowl press conference on Tuesday. While acknowledging the circumstances are not ideal, he’s ready to give his former school the best chance to beat Auburn in Atlanta.

Justin McGriff’s commitment

Receiver Justin McGriff was a Central Florida commit, but now he’s committed to Nebraska. The reason for that? It has a lot to do with McGriff’s familiarity with Frost and his staff.

For more on his commitment, Land of 10’s Chris Bumbaca broke it all down and more.

Number of commits

How many commits could Frost and his staff take in the 2018 recruiting class? Bumbaca tackled that question and plenty more in the latest Land of 10 Nebraska recruiting mailbag.

A Tommy Bush visit

Frost and his staff definitely have their eyes set on 4-star wide receiver Tommy Bush. So much so, the Huskers were back in Schertz, Texas, on Sunday for an in-home visit with the target.

High honor

Nebraska freshman wide receiver JD Spielman was named to the 2017 USA Today Freshman All-America Team on Tuesday. It’s very much deserved after the season Spielman had.

Final Four bound

The Nebraska volleyball team is off to Kansas City for the NCAA Final Four. Here’s hoping they return with a national championship! The Huskers face Penn State Thursday in a 7 p.m. ET semifinal.

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