Nebraska football: Figuring out the Huskers’ current identity

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.

The identity of Nebraska football

Nebraska football doesn’t want to be Wisconsin, but what is the Huskers identity? Land of 10’s Sean Keeler dug into the question and tried to find an answer.

Huskers make recruit’s top 5

Bryan Addison, a 4-star athlete from Junipero Serra High School (Gardena, Calif.), is still interested in Nebraska. So much so, the Huskers made his top-5 list on Thursday.

Then and now

A lot has happened since Nebraska football last met Ohio State at Memorial Stadium. It was 2011 and the Huskers came back from a big deficit to win. Six years later, both teams look very different.

What Mike Riley said

Nebraska football faces Ohio State on Saturday night, and coach Mike Riley addressed the media one last time before the matchup. He discussed freshman offensive lineman Brenden Jaimes, Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett and the Huskers running back situation.

A first look

Character counts

The Lott IMPACT Trophy honors college football’s defensive best in character and performance, and Nebraska safety Joshua Kalu is on the watch list. Not only does he love football, but he has a passion for helping others and for the Nebraska fan base.
