While most of the focus when it comes to the Nebraska Cornhuskers has been on who will be part of the Matt Rhule era, there’s still some business to finish when it comes to the Scott Frost era. That includes various awards and honors for several football players.

Unfortunately, as it turns out, some of those players are getting snubbed. The Big Ten released its all-conference teams on Wednesday, with some notable spots for Trey Palmer and Anthony Grant.

While the two new Nebraska Cornhuskers stars did get mentioned by both the Big Ten media and coaches, it feels like they got overlooked a bit. Trey Palmer, despite a record-setting season only made third-team all-conference.

Anthony Grant didn’t even get as he only got “honorable mention.”

It turns out there was also some more news about Matt Rhule’s still slowly building staff. On Wednesday, it was reported that the new Nebraska football head coach had his quarterbacks coach in Jake Peetz.

Meanwhile, the Nebraska Cornhuskers basketball team won its second straight on Wednesday night and is now 5-3 on the season. While the return of Derrick Walker has seemingly been a lift it was Keisei Tominaga that put the team on his back last night, tieing a career high 23 points scored in the team’s 88-67 win over Boston College.

If Matt Rhule eventually gets the Nebraska Cornhuskers football team where fans hope he can, then something that happened on Wednesday night could be very big news. The last piece in the puzzle to have expanded, 12-team playoffs starting in 2024 went into place.

As for this year, there are still some teams out there, like Ohio State, hoping they can get into the four-team playoff, even if they’re on the outside looking in. It turns out that even if the Buckeyes win the Big 10, but don’t make the playoffs, they won’t be going to the Rose Bowl.

That honor will be awarded to Penn State. That was reportedly at the request of the Buckeyes, oddly enough.
