Nebraska will open up Big 10 conference play this upcoming season under the lights against Wisconsin the Madison.Com newspaper reports. First game in the conference and going up against a good opponent like Wisconsin, I guess you couldn’t expect anything different as the Huskers off the odds stacked against them this first year. I say bring it all on!

University of Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said Thursday that the Badgers will host the Cornhuskers in a night game Oct. 1 to be televised by ESPN. The kickoff time hasn’t been set, but Alvarez said it would likely be 7 p.m. That’s pretty much all we know at this time as nothing official has came out from the Big 10 or the UNL.

Husker fans should know that Camp Randall does get crazy during games and especially big night games. Tough crowd that is tough against the opposing team but also the opposing fans. I have already heard from some Wisconsin fans that have mentioned how crazy it will get especially with a 7 p.m. kickoff. Let’s just hope the Huskers come out and strike early to take the Badger crowd out of it.

One thing is for certain, I’m going to try to make the road trip out to Madison even though it’s a long 13-14 hour drive for me. I want to be there to see the Badgers go down on national tv and see the Huskers pick up their first Big 10 victory! Anyone else planning on going?

Morning Husker fans. The University officially released video and a statement about the upcoming East Stadium expansion that will be going on at Memorial Stadium. There will be an additional 6,000 seats added as well as 38 new suites. The initial plan is calling for the entire expansion to be completed before the 2013 football season. Once completed Memorial Stadium will hold around 91,000 fans and be just on the outside of top 10 largest venues in college football.

Some fans have been wondering what was going on with all the trees being removed a while back on the East side and that’s just to make room for all the construction. Trees will be added back and everything will look great once completed. The developers were able to keep the old facade and will make it look great with the new construction that will be going around it.

Take a look at the video blow and let us know what you think.
