We have arrived! Finally, it's game week, and the Huskers kick everything off on Saturday against Fresno State. Thanks for choosing to listen to the Husker Doc Talk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy.
Seniors Brandon Reilley and Nate Gerry are suspended for the first game, but that has little effect on the Huskers being a 29-point favorite against the Bulldogs.
There are a lot of unknowns about Fresno State as it has a lot of new players on offense and a new offensive coordinator. The Bulldogs hope to establish a running game with the return of Dontel James who's back from knee surgery. Look for a fast paced tempo from Fresno, last season it had a hard time creating an identity last year and scoring points.
The Blackshirts have been handed out, 13 to start the season and all eyes will be on them. Can Nebraska stop the big play? The answer to that question last year was no.
Offensively all eyes will be on Tommie Armstrong and his ability to make good decisions in the passing game. If he goes the entire game without throwing an interception, that in itself is a victory!
Travis Justice and Dr. Rob Zatechka discuss these topics and more in this week's podcast.
Before you head down to the game, make sure to stop and one three Husker Hounds locations in Omaha including the new store at 149th and Maple. If you can't get to Omaha, order online at HuskerHounds.com and show your Big Red Pride.
