Outside linebacker Luke Gifford, Nebraska's most disruptive defender in 2018, firmly believes he’ll be in an NFL team’s rookie mini-camp early next month. He seemingly feels at peace as this week's NFL Draft nears.
Nebraska defensive backs coach Travis Fisher knows exactly what he wants from defenders and verbalizes it well. It's no wonder the Husker secondary seems stabilized for the 2019 season, and is perhaps the defense's strongest position group.

A crowd of 12,391 produced the loudest roars in Pinnacle Bank Arena that Nebraska senior James Palmer has ever heard. Iowa fans had something to do with it. But so did Husker fans' enduring loyalty even during this rugged season. That loyalty was rewarded Sunday.
