Terrell Newby, who posted back-to-back 2,000-yard rushing seasons and ran for 105 touchdowns in his career at Los Angeles’ Chaminade High School, picked the Huskers over UCLA Bruins during a press conference at his high school on Wednesday. Newby is 5’10, 180-pounder and is considered by Rivals.com as the #1 running back in California and the No. 67 player nationally. He also considered offers from California, Washington and Oregon.
It looks like the Huskers and Iowa football teams will meet on Black Friday for the third straight season. Nebraska has a played a football game on the day after Thanksgiving every year since 1990.
Nebraska nearly doubled the salary of Tim Beck, to $700,000, making the offensive coordinator one of the top compensated assistants in the Big Ten.
