The Huskers will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 1994 National Championship Team prior to Saturday night’s game against Miami, which is fitting. Players like sophomore defensive tackle Vincent Valentine is expected the stadium to be jumpin’. Meanwhile sophomore offensive lineman Alex Lewis knows the historical meaning behind playing this game.
Other game notes:
NU long snapper Paul Kelly will not suit up for Nebraska. Kelly came to Lincoln a week into the season to provide another able hand at the position after the injury to Gabe Miller. Kelly, a senior, came to Nebraska after previously snapping at Miami. The two teams reached an agreement.
The Huskers took another injury hit to wide receiver Sam Burtch. He’s out for the season with a torn ACL. NU is also without Brandon Reilly, who will be out this week with a hamstring injury and Nebraska lost senior Jamal Turner to a torn Achilles tendon in Week 2.
