Having dropped from 18th in both polls to 19th in the coaches and 22nd in the AP, the Huskers are right back on the field Saturday night against the Southern Miss Golden Eagles.
The reason the Huskers dropped is because the Wyoming Cowboys rolled up over 600 yards total offense and were in position to come from behind for victory.
The Huskers turned the Cowboys away on the games final possession.
Replacing the Huskers at 18th are the UCLA Bruins who visit Memorial Stadium next Saturday.
What's more the Bruins, who defeated the Nevada Wolfpack in their opener last week 58–20, are idle this week and have two weeks to prepare for the Huskers..
The Huskers assure us they're not looking past Soutern Miss to UCLA.
"You've just got to worry about the opponent that's right now in front of you, can't really look into nobody else and I know this team is not looking ahead right now especially the way we played on Saturday especially the defense. I know that we're going to be looking at Southern Miss and Southern Miss only.
Anytime you put a performance out ther that you feel you left points and left yards on the field as an offense that is something that will eat at you until you get back out there on Saturday
I'm a little disappointed that we didn't weren't as efficient as we hoped to be but at the end of the day we got the W and like I said we're just looking forward from this point."
As we have mentioned here on News 5, the Southern Miss Golden Eagles have lost 13 straight, starting with this game in Lincoln last September 1st.
Nebraska defeated Southern Miss 49–20 and they'd go onto lose all 12 games, then dropped a 22–15 decision to the Texas State Bobcats in their opener down in Hattesburg.
Southern Miss did win in Lincoln 21–17 back in 2004.
Nebraska leads the All–Time series 3 victories to one.
