Welcome to The B1G Show! Today we kickoff our 2013 Big Ten Preview Series with the Nebraska Cornhuskers Preview Show, with special guest Steve Sipple, who covers the Cornhuskers for the Lincoln Journal Star.
Join us as we breakdown Nebraska's offseason storylines, stock report, spotlight key players, examine the team’s biggest question marks and make our bold predictions. In addition, we will go through the entire 2013 schedule game-by-game, while highlighting the most critical matchups and giving you the Cornhuskers best and worst case scenarios for the upcoming season.
Hosted by Daniel Mogollon and Lloyd Ribner III.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers are coming off a 39-19 win in their Big Ten opener against the Illinois Fighting Illini, which saw them rumble for 335 yards. Senior offensive tackle Jeremiah Sirles was a critical part of the offensive line that led the way. Sirles was a second-team All-Big Ten performer as a junior and he will be making his 34 career start this Saturday at Purdue, the second most on the team.
The fifth-year senior talks about playing for Bo Pelini, the importance of being versatile along the offensive line, last week's win over Illinois and this week's contest at Purdue. Sirles also takes us off the field, as we talk about his love of the Denver Broncos, his career interests outside of football, as well as his favorite doughnut.
Interview is from Wednesday night's Week 7 preview show.

A lot of stuff happened to Penn State basketball this week, and it was mostly good! Sure, the Nittany Lions kicked off its recent stretch of games losing to Maryland in College Park, but the squad was able to bounce back with an ugly and well-deserved win over Nebraska. However, the biggest news of the week came when former PSU guard Tim Frazier got called up to the Philadelphia 76ers and became the school's first alumnus to make the NBA since Calvin Booth in 2009. Bill and Chad will discuss everything of and related to Penn State hoops this week, and are joined by Yahoo's Sam Cooper. Get excited: it's time for another episode of the best damn Penn State basketball podcast on the web.
