Mizzou vs. Nebraska: Gary Pinkel, Blaine Gabbert Talk Huskers

It was only Monday, two days after they beat the No. 1 team in the country, but Mizzou players were ready to move onto Nebraska. Like Oklahoma last week, it's the biggest game of the year and a win would do a lot of wonderful things for the program.

Mizzou head coach Gary Pinkel and QB/ Blaine Gabbert talked about going to Lincoln and facing the Huskers.

Pinkel:

"It’s one of the great college stadiums in the country because of the history of Nebraska," said Pinkel.  "I always look at it too as a great opportunity."

Gabbert:

"Each game gets bigger and bigger," said Gabbert.  "Nebraska's a great football team and we're looking forward to playing in Lincoln."

He's right about each game getting bigger and bigger. The Tigers' game this weekend is now the biggest they've had this season -- the biggest since the last Big 12 Championship game, really.
