Kickoff nearing at Memorial Stadium

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Bo Pelini said he'd tweak his team's routine for home games today after two of the Huskers' worst performances of the year -- against Texas and South Dakota State -- came on their home field.

We're a few minutes from finding out if it worked.

If it did, I bet Nebraska has figured out its new routine.

The wind has picked up here at the stadium, and Nebraska is readying for the Tunnel Walk, the Big 12's best pregame tradition. Those slaps on the shoulder pads from the fans lining the red carpet underneath the stadium might be a little harder for a game with as much on the line as this one.
