The game Saturday answered a lot of questions for Husker fans. The main being: “What channel is ESPNU?”
The highlight of the Nebraska-Illinois game was Kenny Bell's third-quarter, one-handed touchdown catch. The only way Bell tops that is to whip off his helmet and catch the ball in his hair.
At halftime, NU led 23-5. Sounds like the score of a Red Sox-Rays ALDS game.
It was so cold on the sideline that Illinois coaches burned their offensive game plan early in the fourth quarter to stay warm.
Reportedly, USC Athletic Director Pat Haden fired Lane Kiffin on the tarmac at LAX and then refused to give Kiffin a ride back to campus. That's when you know a team's road trip didn't go well —- the coach is spotted waiting at a bus stop with luggage.

Detroit Lion receiver Nate Burleson broke his arm in a car accident after running into a median while reaching over to grab a pizza falling off a seat. OK, for the rest of his career, no announcer can compliment Burleson's decision-making.

Last Sunday, the winless Vikings played the winless Steelers at Wembley Stadium in London. This was obviously retribution on the Brits for sending us soccer.
During an ESPN debate between Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith, Smith appeared to fall asleep. Apparently he caught a glimpse of an ESPN2 program on the monitor and immediately nodded off.
The Pinnacle Bank Arena includes a “social corner” for fans to talk with friends, do some business and chat on their cellphones. We have something similar at Creighton basketball games — it's called “Row 1 through Row 52.”
When a man proposed to his girlfriend at the Rockies-Diamondbacks game, the elderly woman beside the couple flipped off the cameras. This sounds like the first stadium marriage proposal I'm sorry I missed.
I wouldn't say the expanded Major League Baseball wild-card playoff selection process is lenient, but the Lincoln Saltdogs made it.
Two players kissed on the court during the WNBA playoffs. It's nice to finally find a couple of young people against public displays of affection who smooch in private.
