Friday's prep results
How'd your favorite high school teams do tonight? No matter the venue, check back with Omaha.com for the latest scores and highlights from around the region.
Turning 30 is OK with NU's Crouch
Individual accomplishments rarely have impressed Nebraska quarterback Eric Crouch. The 436 rushing yards, 633 passing yards and 10 touchdowns he has accounted for mean little to Crouch at this point. NU's five wins do. As he continues his assault on the record books in Saturday night's 6:08 p.m. game against 3-0 Iowa State at Memorial Stadium, Crouch has a chance to add to the record that means the most to him. It would make Crouch the 31st quarterback in NCAA Division I-A history to rack up 30 wins as a starter.
Husker Smith shows patience pays
Buckhalter soars with Eagles
Correll Buckhalter's 99-yard outing against the Dallas Cowboys last weekend didn't make anyone forget about injured Philadelphia running back Duce Staley. But Buckhalter proved a lot to himself, his teammates and coaches in the 40-18 victory. The fourth-round draft pick out of Nebraska showed he not only can play in the National Football League but that he also can be quite effective. Suddenly, the Eagles have a 1-2 punch that, before, they didn't know they had.
Pitching change proves to be a Hitt for Burke
After losing to Papillion-LaVista four times this season, Omaha Burke Softball Coach Katie Nowaczyk knew she had to make some adjustments. Instead of going with Nicole Fringer on the mound, the first-year coach gave the ball to Amanda Hitt in search of some beginner's luck. Hitt held the second-ranked Monarchs to three runs on five hits and struck out three as third-ranked Burke pulled out a 4-3 victory with an improbable finish in a District A-4 game at Dill Field.

Department stores next for top bike lines
Two of the top names in biking soon will be sold in discount department stores. But don't expect them to be the top-quality bike that they are known for. Schwinn and GT were sold to Pacific late last month. Pacific is a department store brand made for the budget-minded rider that doesn't intend on using the bicycles off-road.
