The Nebraska Cornhuskers are going to need to have a good kicker the rest of the way, and it’s looking like Tristan Alvano is growing into that role.
As the Nebraska Cornhuskers football team goes deeper into its 2023 season, there are bound to be some very close games on the horizon. It’s a safe bet that there will be one game that could be determined by whose kicker has the better day.
That’s why Nebraska football fans have to be excited about the fact that their kicker, Tristan Alvano is starting to feel it a bit better. He’s starting to gain confidence. He’s going to need it.
His performance against Illinois just ahead of a bye week went a long way towards getting Alvano some confidence. Coming into that game, he was just 1-for-4 on the season for field goals. He hadn’t a field goal since the season’s first game against Minnesota.
Against Illinois, Alvano went 2-for-3 with all three kicks between 30 and 40 yards. More importantly he hit his first attempt of the game.
“It was huge,” Alvano said after Friday’s win. “Obviously, the last few games, my attempts haven’t gone how I’d liked. Getting that first one through, man, I was fired up after that. It felt great.
The Nebraska football team is going to need him to continue to progress and turn into someone they can depend on.
Nebraska Cornhuskers baseball wrapping up fall practice
The Nebraska baseball team is just about done with fall practices and ready to wrap things up until the season starts this winter. But before that happens, there’s something to determine. Whether the Red or the White team is the better one.
And if you think the players don’t care because it’s exhibition season, then the Huskers would like you to know otherwise.
“It’s big bragging rights in the clubhouse,” catcher Ben Columbus said. “We want that upper edge any way we can over anyone else.”
The series will end on Wednesday afternoon and there will be a Red-White champion crowned.
Daniel Kaelin player of the week
Nebraska Cornhuskers commit Daniel Kaelin is putting together a fine senior season, even if he’s down one of his best weapons. This past week, Kaelin showed just why the Huskers are excited to see the Bellevue West product come to Lincoln.
This week he was named Tanner’s Player of the Week with 253 yards passing and five touchdowns. Those stats allowed him to lead Bellevue West over Bellevue East, 53-14.
It’s not a surprise that the Nebraska Cornhuskers can’t wait to see what he can do at the next level.
