Drew Ott helps Iowa Hawkeyes stay unbeaten

On a cold and blustery Friday after Thanksgiving, the stage was set with one of two outcomes -- each to make history.
Iowa, No. 4 in the college football playoff poll, came into Memorial Stadium sporting an 11-0 record, and a win over the Huskers would give the Hawkeyes its first undefeated regular season since 1922.

Lady Huskies unable to hold late leads in state tourney

The four-five matchup in any tournament is always tabbed as the toss up game, with usually no clear cut advantage.
That was true for Aurora in its first round match against Elkhorn South. In a five set thriller, the Storm was able to outlast the Lady Huskies, 25-23, 19-25, 26-24, 21-25 and 15-12.

Beating traffic not worth it

 First and foremost I owe a huge apology to my son, Aaron. I’m sorry for leaving you high and dry up in the east balcony late Saturday night. You are a much better and loyal Husker fan than I will ever be.
And forgive me, Coach Riley, for I almost sinned.
After Tommy Armstrong, Jr. ran the football into the end zone from one yard out to cut the score down to 38-33 with just 1:47 remaining, and after an unsuccessful and uninspired onside kick attempt, No. 6 and undefeated Michigan State had the ball near midfield. They had the game in the bag, right? Right?
I was bound and determined to beat the traffic home, to maybe have time to stop for a late night burger, and besides, Cindy was waiting for me in the car just across the bridge north of the stadium.

Discovering Husky pride

I don’t know if I could really explain the feeling I got when I was assigned to follow cross country this year. It was a grouping of confused emotions and a lack of knowledge of what I was getting myself into. I mean, I had gone to a school that didn’t have the sport to begin with and I had never taken the opportunity to go to a race on a whim, so this was going to be my first experience of interacting with cross country fever.
As the first meet on the year approached I felt that I was well prepared as I was given a layout of the Seward course and advice on where the best pictures could be taken.
After arriving in Seward that afternoon I began my camera preparations and double checking my battery life to prevent a run back to car in the middle of the race. Since I was nearly an hour away from my next sporting event that night, I remember I needed to be quick, concise, and accurate so I could ensure I was in and out as efficiently as possible.
