LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) According to the school fight song, there is no place like Nebraska.
Mike Riley had to agree Saturday when he came out of the tunnel and saw 76,881 fans waiting to watch his first Red-White game as the Cornhuskers' coach.
"I think I have been in an environment like that - but not even close for a spring game," he said. "That's what really separates it. I don't want to overdo it. I've been around lots of really good fans at all the places I've been. The people here think we have the greatest fans in college football, and I think they're out to prove it all the time."
