Sup Husker fans? After the nice win on Thursday night over Missouri I tried to get a little bit of sleep before heading out to Las Vegas for a weekend full of football and fun. Well I managed to get a little sleep and off I was to Vegas for 12 hours of college football watching at the Bellagio. What a great time that way even though I lost most of my bets lol.

So anyways, I’m back home and the Huskers have moved up to #15 in the polls as the continue to have a nice season. They will face a big test this Saturday in Lincoln however as the Texas Tech Red Raiders will bring their spread offense to town and look to pass the ball all over the Huskers. This will be a stiff test for the defense and a must is getting pressure on whichever quarterback that Mike Leach chooses to start.

The offense will be without running back Rex Burkhead however has he has broken a bone is his foot. All coach Pelini said was that Red would be out for an extended period of time but he was unsure for how long. I’ve heard reports that it is basically a toe injury so lets hope that is the case and not the actual foot.

There was some good news over the weekend as well as the Huskers picked up a verbal committment from Florida offensive linemen Tyler Moore for the 2011 class. Moore is expected to be a top offensive linemen in the 2011 class and he chose the Huskers over the Florida Gators. Tyler will be a great get for the Huskers and he has ties to the team as his cousin Jay Moore and father also played for the Huskers.

Let’s all hope for a great week of practice as the team gears up for Texas Tech. Win this one and we will inch closer to a top 10 rating and pick up a huge conference victory.

    All we need is for the offense to click and we should have this one. I have learned however not to bet on the Big Red but I do support them win or lose. I really do think that Mr. Lee has the confidence, after the Mizzou game, to win these big games. So BGR
