Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Florida Atlantic Owls: Complete Game Preview Template

Nebraska kicks off its 125th season of college football against Florida Atlantic on Saturday. When the matchup was originally scheduled, fans expected to see a battle of the Pelini brothers. That won't be the case, after all.

Carl Pelini resigned from Florida Atlantic last October a midst drug use allegations. The news overshadowed the Owls' 2013 season. Despite having a good November, the team still finished 6-6 overall, which was not what FAU envisioned for the season.

The two programs last met in 2009, where the Huskers put up a 49-3 victory in the season opener at Memorial Stadium. It's the only time the two have met until now.

Who will come out victorious in this Week 1 matchup?

 

Where: Memorial Stadium, Lincoln, Neb.

When: Saturday, August 30 at 3:30 p.m. EST

Watch: Big Ten Network

Listen: Husker Sports Network or Sirius Channel 146, XM 201

Betting Line: Nebraska (-23)
