Nebraska football is just eight days away from their season opener. That made Friday's press conference a bit more intriguing than previous ones that have taken place in fall camp. Huskers' coach shed some light on his thinking as we barrel towards one of the most anticipated seasons in the last few decades.

During his press conference, he said he'd like to have black home and away jerseys. He added that he'd like to use them as a reward for a good defensive performance the week before.
