The Nebraska football team returned to the practice field on Wednesday, after taking the previous two days off from practice. The Huskers, who are next in action on Thursday, Oct. 7 at Kansas State, practiced for a little more than two hours in full pads. Bo Pelini thought about bringing the kids back after just one day, but thought the extra day would help.
The Huskers used yesterday and today for a little bit of work on K-State, but the real preparation begins on Friday, because NU plays K-State a week from today, so not much changes other than things get backed down two days.
The Wildcats, like NU 4-0, but Bill Snyder’s squad is 1-0 after beating Iowa State in a conference game in week three.
A couple of Husker notes in pro football. First the NFL. Former Husker and eight-year veteran Chris Kelsay of the Buffalo Bills signed a four year contract extension worth $24 million. Kelsay was a second round pick of the Bills in 2003.
In the UFL, The Omaha Nighthawks are nearing another sellout for Saturday’s game against Sacramento, a team that is 1-1 and led by former NFL quarterback Daunte Culpepper. Former NU running back Cory Ross who lives in Lincoln, plays for Sacramento. In fact last year, in the UFL’s first season, Ross led the league in rushing.
