Dec. 6 Big Ten Championship
Ken Clark, one of the top all-time rushers at Nebraska who went on to play for the Indianapolis Colts, has died. He was 46.
His cousin, Stephanie Clark of Omaha, confirmed Clark's death. She said he died of a heart attack in Minneapolis on Saturday.
Clark was a two-time All-Big Eight running back for the Cornhuskers, rushing for more than 1,000 yards both his junior and senior seasons.
His career highlight came in 1988, when he ran for 256 yards and three touchdowns in a win over Heisman Trophy winner Barry Sanders and Oklahoma State. His three-year rushing total of 3,037 yards ranks seventh on Nebraska's career chart.
Clark appeared in 34 games with the Colts from 1990 to 1992.
Indiana spent the first 15 minutes Wednesday night contending with Nebraska's deliberate style.
The Hoosiers spent the final 25 decimating it.
Cody Zeller fought through foul trouble to score 16 points, Christian Watford finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds and No. 1 Indiana eventually pulled away from the Cornhuskers for a resounding 76-47 victory.
"We're not trying to set records, we're trying to win a national championship," coach Tom Crean said. "But at the end of the day, if you want to win big, you have to play a lot of different ways, and our guys did that and they stayed true to the game plan."
Indiana certainly played like it wanted to stay atop the polls for a third straight week after getting a reprieve last week when all of the top five teams lost. If the Hoosiers beat Purdue again Saturday, there may not be much of a debate about who's No. 1.
To players, Wednesday night's game felt like two in one.
The first was frustrating as Nebraska repeatedly ran the shot clock inside of 10 seconds and refused to let Indiana speed up the pace. But the Hoosiers refused to crack under the pressure by taking care of the ball and waiting patiently for a chance to make their move.
When they got the opening, the Hoosiers quickly reverted to form and seized control as the defense clamped down, the shooters warmed up, and instead of folding when Zeller went to the bench with two fouls midway through the first half, they surged.
Nebraska simply couldn't keep up.
The Nebraska assault trial for New England Patriots rookie Alfonzo Dennard has begun.
Dennard, a former Nebraska cornerback, was arrested April 21 outside a bar in Lincoln, accused of punching a police officer in the face during a fight. Dennard is charged with assaulting an officer, resisting arrest and third-degree assault and faces up to five years in prison if convicted.
Dennard's trial in Lancaster County District Court started Monday. Dennard's lawyer said in his opening statement that Dennard hit the officer in self-defense.
On Tuesday, Officer Brian Kopsa testified that Dennard hit him in the jaw after Kopsa told the football player he was under arrest.
Attorneys have said they expect the trial to end on Friday.
Farewell, FCS punching bags. We barely knew ye.
Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez says Big Ten officials recently agreed to stop scheduling nonconference games against FCS schools. Alvarez said, “The nonconference schedule in our league is ridiculous. It’s not very appealing…We’ve made an agreement that our future games will all be Division I schools. It will not be FCS schools.”
No word yet on when the agreement would kick in, but an obvious starting point could be the 2014 season with the addition of Maryland and Rutgers to the Big Ten. McNeese State is on the Huskers schedule that year on Sept. 6.
The Huskers baseball team begins its 2013 campaign on the road this weekend against Cal State-Fullerton and Southern Cal.
Neither game is televised locally, but you can watch them on the stream:
Tyronn Lue will be inducted into the Nebraska Basketball Hall of Fame. Lue spent three seasons at Nebraska and still ranks among the career leaders in 10 categories.
Meanwhile, retired Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne and former all-conference player Dave Hoppen will be honored at the February 16th game against Michigan State.
