Nebraska at USC
Sept. 16
These two teams haven't faced off since their 21-21 tie back in 1970. If Bill Callahan can pull off a huge upset win in Los Angeles, Big Red will make a big step toward regaining its elite status. With all the firepower USC lost in the offseason, the Trojans will be vulnerable early on; DE Adam Carriker and the Huskers' Black Shirt defense must capitalize.
