    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.

    The whole non-conference is going to be an exhibition.

    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.
