LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) â€” Five Nebraska players have been suspended for the September 5 opener against BYU for violating team rules.
Coach Mike Riley announced the suspensions after practice Thursday night. He said he wouldn't name the suspended players at this time but might by the week of the opener. He said "it will become obvious as the kickoff occurs."
Riley also announced that receiver Sam Burtch and cornerback Chris Jones had knee surgeries this week. No timetable is set for their returns. He also said running back Jordan Stevenson didn't practice because of a bad ankle.
They seem to defy the laws of physics with their eye-popping catches and bursts of speed that would make even The Flash envious. Now, these five receiving marvels are primed to create havoc once again on opposing secondaries across the land. Blink and you may miss these human blurs in action... which is why this Campus Insiders hype video slows them down so you can enjoy their highlights.

Wednesday morning the Chamber staff noticed vandalism in front of their buidling on the east side of the Square. The barrel of flowers that sits outside was heavy, so it would have taken some effort to upset it. The worst part was the burnt flag left in the window.
The Chamber Office have spoken with police.
The staff would like to give a big thank you to our President Todd Lundstrom, who was able to come right away and help clean it up.
