The week ahead

Nebraska at Miami (Fla.)

•From the 1980s through the early 2000s, these programs gave us some of the best matchups, topped by the Hurricanes' epic 31-30 Orange Bowl victory following the '83 season. The Huskers and 'Canes resumed the rivalry last year, a 41-31 Nebraska win in Lincoln.
