Nebraska’s football team is preparing to play its eighth straight game of the season this Saturday at Minnesota.  The Gophers are 3-2 overall, 1-1 in the Big Ten and are coming off a bye week. 

Tight end Austin Allen was asked yesterday about the Huskers taking on a rested opponent.  “They obviously have had some time to heal up, but it is also a good mindset for us,” Allen said. “We have a bye week next week.  Let’s give it our all.  Let’s put our bodies on the line.”

Saturday’s kickoff is set for 11 a.m.  The pregame starts at 7 a.m. on News Talk 900 KJSK.  It will be joined at 10:30 on 93.5 The Hawk.
