Huskers head coach Bo Pelini has one rule for this team this short week as they prepare for Colorado. No talk about Texas. Pelini wants no talk of tickets, arrangements that need to be made for the game in Dallas, etc. until after they return home from Colorado.
There’s about 3,000 tickets left for the Big 12 championship game down in Dallas between Nebraska and the south champion Texas Longhorns on sale this morning at 8am. Call 1-800-8-Big-Red for tickets.
As far as the CU game, offensive coordinator Shawn Watson likes what he sees from freshmen running back Rex Burkhead. Watson says Rex will see more ball carries this weekend against Colorado and says the true freshmen has the freshest legs on the team. Watson is also pleased with the development of Zac Lee and talks about how that time off on the bench really helped him.
