LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) â€” Ameer Abdullah has the third-most rushing attempts in the nation and has touched the ball on one-third of Nebraska's plays from scrimmage.
He wants to continue with the heavy workload.
"I feel better in week No. 4 than I have in previous seasons," Abdullah said.
That's good for the 21st-ranked Cornhuskers (4-0) and bad for Illinois (3-1), which visits Memorial Stadium on Saturday.
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) â€” Nearly 20 Omaha flights into or out of Chicago airports have been canceled because of a fire at an air traffic control facility in a Chicago suburb.
Omaha Airport Authority officials urged travelers to check with their airlines or go online at www.flyoma.com to see whether their flights have been affected.
Officials say Friday's early morning fire started in the basement of the Chicago Air Route Traffic Control Center in Aurora, forcing evacuation of the center. More than 850 flights had been canceled in Chicago alone, and more cancellations were expected.
As we head into Week five, Ameer Abdullah has already rushed for 625 yards, but does this make him the best running back in America? Football analyst Doug Chapman and a special surprise guest go head-to-head on who deserves the honor.
