Buzz words

No. 24: Nebraska checks in at No. 24 in Sports Illustrated's preseason top 25.  The Huskers are sandwiched between Iowa State (23) and Stanford (25).

Sneak peek: The first 20-30 minutes of Wednesday's practice will be open to the media to watch. It's our first look at the Huskers this fall camp.

Opponent watch

Maryland (Nov. 23, College Park, Md.): By the time Nebraska plays at Maryland, you'll be picking out the turkey for Thanksgiving. A lot will happen between now and then. But what we do know is Nebraska will not see Jeshaun Jones.

The sophomore wide receiver tore his ACL at practice on Monday and will miss the entire season, the Terrapins announced Tuesday.

Jones, who was a one-time Husker recruiting target, had 288 receiving yards last year. He also rushed for 173 yards, averaging 9.6 per carry.
