The Huskers enter the contest at 1-1, following a 31-28 loss to Northwestern on 8/27, and a 38-17 victory over North Dakota last Saturday. Georgia Southern, in the Sun Belt Conference, is under the direction of first-year head coach Clay Helton, who took over the Eagles program after six seasons as the head coach at USC. It is the first match-up for these two teams.
“Saturday’s game will feature several special events, including Ag Day at Memorial Stadium, with Nebraska planning several presentations honoring the state’s agricultural background. Nebraska will also wear throwback uniforms recognizing the 1983 “Scoring Explosion” season, and the 2022 class of the Nebraska Football Hall of Fame will be honored before the game.“
