    Anybody know why we only play 1 exhibition?

    I thought we always played 2 exhibition games instead of one. Am I wrong?

    I'm sure it's better for the team to scrimmage better teams but I like as many games in Hilton as possible. Super ready for November 6th.

    Not sure why, but I think it's nice that we're playing Ric Wesley's team for our exhibition game.

    Yeah, I guess you guys are right. Scheduled for October 30 in Lincoln as a closed scrimmage.

    Wonder why they went that route...I would think that playing some school like Loras or the EA sports all stars might be a more competitive game.

    Nebraska gets us a look at some tough defense. That scrimmage is better than most of our noncon schedule.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    That's really an interesting scrimmage. I think it's interesting that we are scrimmaging them when only a year ago we played them 2 times as a conference opponent.
