Everyone have a nice, relaxing, enjoyable bye week? We sure did. Did a little grocery shopping, washed the dishes, cleaned the living room, raked some leaves, scrubbed the bathtub, changed a few lightbulbs, dusted the china cabinet, let the dog out, fluffed the pillows, folded the laundry, replaced the batteries in our smoke detector, vacuumed the hallway, trimmed the bushes, swept the floors, emptied out the garbage cans, painted the house, fixed the shutters, ironed our dry cleaning, reorganized the dining room, sorted the bookshelf, baked a cake, watered the plants, and scheduled a dentist appointment.
Don’t be surprised if Illinois comes hot out of the gate against Nebraska. The Illini haven’t played a game since Sept. 15, and had plenty of time to rest up and prepare for the Huskers. Not only is it a short week for the Huskers, but they will also have to make the 516 mile trip to Champaign. NU had to alter its preparation schedule and did not get an off day to rest on Sunday. Huskers tight end Tyler Hoppes said the short week changed how they prepared, but said the team will be locked in come Friday.
The Huskers hold the 25 best rushing defense in the country heading into Friday’s contest. Linebackers Luke Gifford, Dedrick Young, Chris Webber, and Marcus Newby make up four of the top five tacklers on Nebraska’s defense. Combined, they have 9 of Nebraska’s 18 run stuffs (rushes stopped at, or behind the line of scrimmage) and have held opponents to an average of 114.8 yards per game. The Huskers’ overall adjusted scoring average is 22.7 points per game according to S&P, which means
