Football: Swinney rights Clemson's ship

A Nebraska-Clemson meeting in the Gator Bowl might have seemed unlikely when both teams were 3-3 in mid-October, and the Tigers were left to deal with the resignation of Tommy Bowden as coach. That's when Dabo Swinney, named interim coach at Clemson, took his team aside. Swinney and Clemson on Wednesday formally accepted an invitation to the Gator Bowl. Nebraska won't officially be announced as the opponent until Sunday, but offensive coordinator Shawn Watson said the Huskers will "start looking at them" in regards to a question about the Tigers.

Men's basketball: Huskers go long to drop Hornets

Steve Harley scored 16 points to lead four Huskers in double figures as hot-shooting Nebraska opened up a 25-point halftime lead and rolled past Alabama State 80-51 Wednesday at the Devaney Center in front of a crowd of 6,030 fans.

 


Volleyball: Liberty no stranger to tourney

Talk to Liberty coach Shane Pinder about his team's upcoming trip to Nebraska, and it quickly becomes clear that Pinder is quite the fan of John Cook and the Huskers' heavyweight volleyball program. Pinder, in his fifth year as the Flames' head coach, said he always makes a point of recording and watching as many televised college matches as possible during the season. He hasn't yet set foot in Nebraska's home gym, but he knows its history and has felt its magic over the airwaves.

 


Women's Basketball: Griffin to have surgery, sit out season

Nebraska forward Kelsey Griffin, who hasn't practiced since August, will miss the rest of the season after she undergoes surgery on her left ankle today. Griffin bruised a bone when her left foot landed awkwardly on another teammate during an Aug. 28 pickup game. She was not healthy enough to play during the Huskers' first seven games this fall.

 


Baseball: Huskers sign 14 players

Nebraska's baseball recruiting class, save for a few names, isn't likely to turn heads among the pro scouts. Just as coach Mike Anderson likes it. The headliner of the class, to arrive at NU next fall, is 6-foot-8 pitcher Tom Lemke. The right-hander from Northwest Christian High School in Phoenix is a two-time all-state performer in Arizona with 20 wins and 246 strikeouts in three varsity seasons. Lemke's parents, Jeff and Beth Lemke, are from Grand Island, Neb. He signed with the Huskers after also visiting North Carolina and Miami.
