The Nebraska Cornhuskers are going to be playing in a revamped Memorial Stadium in the next few years, and there’s gonna be a ton of changes. Including the troughs.

There are a ton of changes coming to the grand old dame. That stadium has famously been around for 100 years and athletic director Trev Alberts has made it his missions to modernize and update it so that it can be around for another 100 years.

Right at the top of the list of changes is getting better seats. That will actually mean reducing the number of seats and probably making the sellout streak pretty easy to keep going for decades.

KLIN radio Sports director Kaleb Henry had a very nice breakdown that he posted on Twitter. It laid out all the changes that are going to be coming and should be here by 2026.

Nebraska Cornhuskers tie Rutgers

The Huskers have seen their Cinderella season take a bit of a hit since the Big Ten schedule started, though they’re still having decent success. On Thursday night, they managed to forge a tie with the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

In the process, Senior Eleanor Dale recorded her sixth brace of the season. That brace means that she is the leading goal scorer in the entire nation. Unfortunately, the rest of the Huskers couldn’t do better than mustering a 2-2 tie. Still, they’re having a good season as they are now 7-2-3 and 1-1-2.

Matt Waldron keeps rookie season going

Former Nebraska Cornhuskers pitcher Matt Waldron is looking like he might have figured things out. On Thursday night, he took the mound for the San Francisco Giants and pitched 6I innings, allowed 5 hits, 2 earned runs, 2 walks, and struck out 2.

Waldron has changed his approach in order to throw the knuckleball, and while he struggled at first, it appears he’s finding ways to make it work.
