1. Spruced-up digs: Memorial Stadium was already one of college football's top venues; with the East Stadium expansion, it looks more imposing than ever. Though Husker fans got a glimpse of the project in its construction phase last year, the project has a polish now that gives fans a scope of how the stadium's changed.

2. First line of defense: It's a natural tendency in the offseason to focus on a team's biggest weakness, and with NU, that has to be a defensive line pummeled by injuries and inefficiency at the end of 2012. Outside of defensive end Jason Ankrah, there are no spots locked down on the Huskers' four-man front. Freshmen Avery Moss, Greg McMullen and Vincent Valentine will get long looks, as will sophomores Aaron Curry and Kevin Williams. And then there's senior Alliance walk-on Brodrick Nickens trying to pull a Justin Jackson, switching sides of the ball in his final year in a bid to start.
