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.

Huskers at Wisconsin Watch Parties #Huskers #GBR #COTNgbr

            South: Third Base South Park Meadows, 9600 S IH 35, Austin, TX 78748
               (IH 35 Slaughter Lane Exit, Southbound Access Rd)

Game Time:    2:30 PM
 
Date:     Saturday, November 15, 2014

The Huskers have a tough match up this Saturday in Madison, Wisconsin. The Badgers have a great running game and a very good defense. Their 2 losses this year to LSU and Northwestern were by narrow margins. Ameer Abdullah is expected to play after not practicing during last week's bye week. He's wearing a knee brace this week during practices. The hope is he will be ready for Wisconsin.

Advanced information: The Husker baseball team will be playing at Minute Maid Park in Houston March 6-8, 2015. The Nebraska Alumni Association will be hosting an event based around the game on Sat., March 7th inside the ballpark (prior to the game). 

Elite Sports Agency was able to obtain a significant portion of a very historic part of Nebraska Football....the Game Used Turf from Memorial Stadium played on during the 1984-1991 seasons when Tom Osborne was coach.  Nebraska won 47 games on this very turf and only lost 6. Information on purchasing a piece of this turn is available at this ebay link:

Game Time:    2:30 PM
 
Date:     Saturday, November 1, 2014

First of all, let me apologize for the error in last week's newsletter. I indicated the next game would be against Wisconsin. This was obviously incorrect. Working the last couple of weeks in rural Nebraska, I likely pulled up the incorrect schedule. 

Nebraska does face Purdue at home this Saturday at 2:30 pm. The Huskers will be looking to maintain their first place position in the Big 10 West and move their record to 8-1. Purdue is 3-5 this season. Nebraska must not look past this game, as every win is important during the remainder of the season.

We have some new Husker merchandise in, will be running our raffle and the board to add to the fun of watching Nebraska take on the Boilermakers.
