Without the usual external motivators, where do Nebraska players and coaches turn?
Recruiting is not the real reason realignment hasn’t been good to Nebraska. That would be Wisconsin.
Dozens of prospects and some of the top in-state players are planning on being in attendance.
Nebraska is set for its biggest recruiting weekend of the year, which even an 11 a.m. kickoff couldn’t slow down. The Huskers will host a glut of official visitors as they finish a class currently ranked in the mid-30s nationally and the back half of the Big Ten by 247Sports and Rivals.
