Nebraska Cornhuskers commit Carter Nelson continued showing exactly why he’s the top recruit in the state on Friday in just one half of football.
While the Nebraska football team’s bowl hopes are still very much alive following a big win over Illinois, the future is also looking quite bright. While the Nebraska Cornhuskers were busy putting the Illini away, one of Matt Rhule’s key snags in the 2024 class was busy dominating his own opponent.
Carter Nelson is the top prize in the 2024 class for Nebraska football recruiting. He showed why one more time on Friday. And he did it by absolutely dominating just the first half of his most recent game.
In Friday’s game, Nelson ran for 241 yards and five touchdowns. Again, that’s in the first half alone.
He also returned a punt for a touchdown. In a surprise to no one, that performance allowed the Ainsworth Bulldogs to win their game over St. Mary’s 64-6. The victory improved the Bulldogs to 7-0.
In addition to his rushing total, Nelson also completed 6-of-7 passes for 30 yards and had one catch for two yards. 8-Man football is absolutely wild.
Nebraska Cornhuskers baseball slugs way to exhibition win

Nebraska volleyball sweeps the weekend
The Nebraska Cornhuskers volleyball team didn’t always make it pretty but they are still undefeated. On Friday night, they knocked off the Michigan State Spartans in four sets. On Saturday night, John Cook’s squad swept the Michigan Wolverines.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers haven’t always looked dominant in their last four matches. However, after winning the first set on Saturday 29-27, they won the next two 25-17 and 25-14. Perhaps they’ve found the next gear they need to hit. Next weekend, they have one more tuneup against MIchigan State on Friday before a Saturday night clash of the titans against Penn State, who is 6-0 in the Big Ten.
