What was said before the game:
Series Info:
This series is knotted at 7-7-1.  Nebraska tied the series last year with an OT win in South Bend.  Nebraska almost blew the game with two costly special teams mistakes.  The Huskers look to finish the ENTIRE 4 quarters this year and come away with a victory against their first ranked opponent. 

Nebraska has been able to do whatever they want to on the ground.  Crouch has not been forced to throw the ball much.  This will be a close game and with the clock winding down in the 4th quarter, Crouch might have to see what he can do in the air.  Nebraska should control the ground game with little problem, but might face a tough air attack from Levecchio.  This is Notre Dame's first game of the season so Nebraska still wins, but will face their 1st test of the season.
