The lights of Memorial Stadium are on and just under an hour away from kickoff.
The Huskers come into tonight’s game after a shaky 37-34 win over Wyoming last Saturday. Throughout practice this week, the focus had been on preparation and execution… something the Blackshirts were lacking last week.
Tonight, the Huskers face Southern Miss. Fans and coaches expect to see some of the defensive pieces come together in preparation for next week’s crucial game against a tough UCLA team.
But first, the Golden Eagles.
This is the fifth time these two teams will meet. Huskers own a 3-1 lead in the series, including a 49-20 win last season. The Golden Eagles come off a loss to Texas State last week, 22-15. USM struggled on both sides of the ball in that game, Huskers will look to do the same this week.
“Make them one dimensional.” Defensive coach John Papuchis said this week.
