The Huskers practiced at Freedom High School for the first of four workouts in Orlando on Thursday for about two hours in pads, then headed to Disney World. They’re practicing Friday morning at 9:30, then they’ll head over to the Universal theme parks. One welcomed site to the field was running back Rex Burkhead practiced without a knee brace.

When you look at the Georgia Bulldogs offensively, people talk a lot about their running game. Freshmen Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall have combined to rush for 2,031 yards and they’re averaging 6.5 yards per carry and 24 touchdowns, but defensive lineman Chase Rome brings up a good point. Georgia may be one of the most balanced teams in the country.

Quarterback Aaron Murray is one of the most dangerous weapons for the Bulldogs. This season he’s completed 65% of his passes, nearly 3,500 yards and 31 touchdowns to go against eight interceptions.
