Football Threat Level: Red (Severe)

Nebraska will be facing Auburn in the 2007 AT&T Cotton Bowl. Auburn is a good team, and it should be a good game. Nebraska and Auburn have matched up three times (last game played in 1982), and Nebraska won each of those games. As a perk, my family will be heading to Dallas to watch the game in person.

My only problem: Auburn is in Alabama. I live in Alabama right now, attending Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham. Alabamians take their football very seriously. If the Huskers lose--a definite possibility considering that we are facing the nation's 10th-ranked team as we come off an emotionally draining loss--I will never hear the end of it.

On the other hand, if we win, I will be the best friend of every fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide (Auburn's arch-enemy, the other half of the country's biggest in-state rivalry), and I will be able to wear my Husker apparel a little more proudly during the next few years.

We had better win this game.

I'm going to go ahead and say that Auburn is going to win? In tough times like these (such as when I was contemplating the potential Huskers vs. Hogs in the Cotton Bowl) it's best to think big picture and ask yourself: who has the better mascot and/or cheer?

I would have had to cheer for the Razorbacks.

Thanks for the support, Lindsey. :)



(Just thought you might be feeling a little alone in your love for the Nebraska football team, Jacob.)

Thanks! Actually, I know a die-hard Alabama fan who came up to me yesterday and said, "Well, Nebraska's my second favorite team until the end of the season."

I also had someone warn me not to wear my Nebraska shirts too prominently because of the many Auburn fans in the area. He was joking, but I might just wear a Nebraska shirt every day for the rest of my time down here. :)
