Can the Huskers cap off this 2014 season with a Bowl win against the USC Trojans? The team is led by Barney Cotton following the firing of Bo Pelini. New coach Mike Riley does not take over until after this bowl game. An article, "Final farewell on field", on Cotton and other last game coaches was in the Austin American Statesman this morning.

Huskers at Iowa Watch Parties #Huskers #GBR #COTNgbr

Huskers at Iowa Watch Parties

Where: North: Third Base Northwest, 13301 US 183, Bldg E, Austin, TX 78750
               (183 Anderson Mill Road Exit, Northbound Access Rd, in front of Main Event
            South: Third Base South Park Meadows, 9600 S IH 35, Austin, TX 78748
               (IH 35 Slaughter Lane Exit, Southbound Access Rd)

Game Time:    11:00 AM
 
Date:     Friday, November 28, 2014

The Husker defense let us down last week and the offense wasn't much better. This team does not want to finish the regular season with 3 losses. The team should be up to win this one versus Iowa. The latest line has Iowa as a 1 point favorite.  The Hawkeyes are 7-4 with 3 of their 4 losses coming in the Big 10. They will be a tough opponent playing on their home field. Kickoff temperature will be in the low 30's, getting as warm, if you can call it warm, 38 degrees by the time the game is over. Better weather than earlier in the week when they are expecting snow.

This is the last regular season game. The next game will be a bowl game. We will likely have a watch party for this game also and let you know about plans once it is announced.
 
Coming events:  The Husker Baseball team will be playing in Houston in the spring, a chance to see the team while in the Texas neighborhood. We are also planning a spring group picnic. Stay connected for more info on these upcoming events along with other breaking news.

Huskers vs MInnnesota Watch Parties #Huskers #GBR #COTNgbr



Where: North: Third Base Northwest, 13301 US 183, Bldg E, Austin, TX 78750
               (183 Anderson Mill Road Exit, Northbound Access Rd, in front of Main Event
            South: Third Base South Park Meadows, 9600 S IH 35, Austin, TX 78748
               (IH 35 Slaughter Lane Exit, Southbound Access Rd)

Game Time:    11:00 AM
 
Date:     Saturday, November 22, 2014

This Huskers will be looking regroup after the disaster of last weekend at Wisconsin. No time to rest up. This game will be difficult also. MInnesota played Ohio State very tough last week, losing by only 7 points. Two of the 7-3 Golden Golphers losses were to highly ranked teams. Nebraska needs to start playing better when matched up with ranked teams. Minnesota is in the top 25, so here's their chance. Win or lose, we always have a good time at the Capitol of Texas Nebraska Watch Parties. We will have a halftime raffle, play the "Board" and have Husker Merchandise available for purchase.

The following came in from our Husker friends in Georgetown. I think this went to most everyone, but am repeating it in this newsletter as a reminder. This is another great opportunity to get together with fellow Nebraskans.

We are having our Nebraska Fall Get Together and we would like to invite all Nebraskans.  We would sincerely appreciate it if you could put out the Big Red Word to all Nebraskans in the Austin Area.
