No talks have been held since the contract between Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska and Catholic Health Initiatives expired Sept. 1. So the facilities and doctors affiliated with Catholic Health Initiatives are no longer part of the Blue Cross network.

September 18, 2014

Miami (2-1) at No. 24 Nebraska (3-0), 8 p.m. (ESPN2)

Line: Nebraska by 7 ½.

Series Record: Tied 5-5.

Miami believes it's a better team than the one that lost at Louisville in its opener. There's no better way to find out than playing on the road in front of 90,000 fans, many of whom remember the days when the Hurricanes beat their Cornhuskers regularly in bowl games. Nebraska's best test came from FCS McNeese State, and it barely escaped. The Huskers could use a solid win over a quality opponent before Big Ten play begins.
