During his weekly press conference, head coach Mike Kramer was asked by an eager reporter what a win in Lincoln would do for his team?
Coach Kramer smiled, and said, "A win this week?? Well, I would just say if we play successfully this week, is how I'd rather term it, it would tell us we're more mentally tough than we've been in the past. Our immediate goal is to get out of the game a better football team than when we went into it. The point is, is that we're trying to prepare ourselves best we can to win the Big Sky Conference Championship, and that does not go through Lincoln, Nebraska."
But Idaho State doesn't mind using Nebraska to make their team tougher for that conference season. The Bengals and Huskers do battle at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Nebraska at 1:30 pm (MTN) Saturday, and you can catch that game on the Big Ten Network.
