WEEK 13: Nebraska
Bahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!  

We shall see you again next Black Friday Huskers!  Oh, and let’s see what Scott Frost can do back at is alma matter.  Sadly for Frost, things have changed much in the upper midwest since he was at Nebraska winning a national title in the late 90s.  He may be about to find out the hard way.

Postseason - Pinstripe Bowl v Boston College

So, it’s the Hawkeyes vs the Eagles, two birds of prey going at it for Pinstripe glory.  Having never met  on the field, it’s been some time since your scribe has even seen BC on the television, so we have to learn from youtube and the recaps of their season for some guidance on what the Hawks will face.  First, a recap of the BC 2017 season.

The Eagles actually opened up on the road, paying the midwest a visit, as they played Norther Illinois at their place, in Dekalb, IL.
