LINCOLN — The blocking on the field becomes music in assistant coach Rich Fisher's ears once Nebraska's receivers finish a series. A game within a game that he's devised has their attention, and they're not afraid to give him instant updates on their progress.
Fisher's game doesn't just recognize touchdowns and yards after a catch. It rewards points for several types of blocks, which helps a Husker pursue Fisher's end-of-season “Perimeter Warrior Award.”
