Huskers’ pass defense must step up

Even if Cooper leaves, Huskers’ WRs will be fine
Because of fame and fortune, it’s always very difficult for a teenager -- or anyone, for that matter -- to turn down a shot at playing in the big leagues. Nebraska Cornhuskers wide receiver Khiry Cooper is no different. Don't be shocked if the 6-foot-2, 175-pound Co...

Nebraska recruiting hits a temporary lull
