I mentioned yesterday that there are rumors circulating around the NU campus that receivers coach Ted Gilmore is in line or at least a candidate for the head coach position at Wyoming. Yesterday Sean Callahan tracked Gilmore down on the field after practice to try to nail the coach down for answers.
I did some research on Huskers.com about the Colorado series and playing on Thanksgiving. Nebraska owns a 46-18-2 edge in the all-time series with Colorado, including a 24-8 advantage in Lincoln. Colorado ended a two-game Husker winning streak last year in Boulder and gained a 4-3 edge in the series since 2001 after the Huskers won nine straight from 1992 to 2000. This is the 19th straight year that Nebraska is 15-8 all-time on the day after Thanksgiving. Nebraska and Oklahoma also squared off on Thanksgiving Day five times between 1965 and 1972. 21 Huskers playing their last game at Memorial Stadium.
