Here we are ladies and gentlemen, it’s game week and on Saturday, the Florida Atlantic Owls will grace Memorial Stadium with their presence. Let’s get to answerin’ the first in-season Monday Mailbag questions of the 2014 season.
Brandon: Both good choices, but I think Newby is perfect for this. We saw how popular Demorrio Williams became in a very similar role to what Newby’s been practicing. Plus, No. 3’s going to have the good fortune of working against players roughed up by Randy Gregory.
He’s a very unique player that I think fans will love if he can get things clicking by conference time.
Brandon: Well, let’s be honest, Florida Atlantic’s not exactly Florida State, but Nebraska simply has better talent across the board. That said, the Huskers also have the capability to very easily slip under that 24 point spread by way of first game turnovers, penalties, etc.
When you take those opening game jitters into account, home field advantage for the Big Red and overall first string talent, that equates to a very understandable four score line.
It’s perfect for Vegas, though, as they’re looking to make money on both sides and the game could go either way in terms of whether or not the Huskers beat the spread.
Brandon: According to Huskers.com:
Nebraska Athletics is extending its contract with NeuLion, a leading internet video technology provider for live and on-demand interactive content for any Internet-enabled device, to develop an innovative in-venue game-day experience.
Through a smartphone application, fans will be able to access in-depth information about the games, including exclusive streaming video content only available to those inside Memorial Stadium.
The update goes on to list more that’ll be available with the app and other game day experience upgrades.
Brandon: You know, I still don’t fully understand what Bo meant by that and honestly, I’m kinda proud of that.
