Joseph: “Nobody’s Going to Win the West on Oct. 15”

Heading into their football game at Purdue Saturday night, the Huskers are in a three-way tie for first place in the Big Ten West with the Boilermakers and Illinois. 

Following yesterday’s practice, interim coach Mickey Joseph was asked about the stakes on Saturday.  “It’s the next game up,” Joseph said.  “The job is to go 1-0 this week.  Nobody is going to win the West on October 15.  We’re not looking down the line.  We’re looking straight at Purdue.”    

Saturday’s kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m.  The pregame starts at 2:30 p.m. on News Talk 900 KJSK.  It will be joined at 6 o’clock on 93.5 The Hawk.
