Here are some headlines from HUSKERMAX.com;

Bill Moos says he’s pushing for a 12-game schedule with divisional games in the middle of the season.

The replacement of Memorial Stadium’s FieldTurf won’t happen this summer after all.

The Big Ten reported more than $780 million in revenue, the most of any Power 5 Conference.

The Pac-12 has followed the Big Ten in moving to conference-only schedules for fall sports.

Kamaru Usman defeated Jorge Masvidal via unanimous decision (50-45, 50-45, 49-46) in the main event of UFC 251 on Sunday morning in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. With the win, the former Loper retained his UFC welterweight title. Usman’s 12 straight wins ties lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov for the longest active winning streak in the UFC. That figure also ties Georges St-Pierre for the longest winning streak in UFC welterweight history.

The South Team dominated the North Team, 30-6, to win the 62nd Nebraska Shrine Bowl Saturday at UNK’s Ron and Carol Cope Stadium at Foster Field. Offensive MVP honors were given to Alan Mendoza of Omaha South, who was a perfect 3-for-3 on field goals, including one from 51 yards.

The United States Hockey League (USHL) on Friday announced its plan to start the 2020-21 season this fall with the intention to play a full schedule.
