Beat writer's pick: Illinois 24, Nebraska 20

Illinois hasn't played in nearly two full weeks following its loss at South Florida. Nebraska is prepping on a short week after holding on to beat Rutgers on Saturday. Friday night's Big Ten opener could come down to which offense gets in gear first — and better than it has so far this season. Our beat writer gives the day before edge to the Illini.

Weak take.  There will be about 20,000 people max for this nationally televised display of bad football.

Huskers energized by Interim AD Rimington.

Huskers remember the loss last time they came to Memorial Stadium.  

Huskers win 20-12.
