A Tainted Season-Opener

Nebraska coach Mike Riley announced yesterday that five players will be suspended for the season-opener September 5 against Brigham Young but declined to name them.  One is thought to be a defensive starter.

B.Y.U. linebacker Sione Takitaki will also be suspended for the game, having been charged in two
instances of misdemeanor theft on campus last month.  Additionally, as many as 10 Cougars may miss the game as punishment for their roles in a brawl with Memphis after last year’s
Miami Beach Bowl.
