Nebraska Football’s 2022 Schedule: A Recap of the First Quarter

College football fans know that nearly every college football team plays a 12-game schedule every year (excluding postseason games). Fans also know that there are four quarters in every football game. In a stunning brainwave (!), I decided to review Husker’s 2022 football schedule in four segments – hence the four-quarter reference.

First up are Nebraska’s top three opponents: Northwestern, North Dakota, and Georgia Southern.
