Nebraska hopes to end title drought on gridiron

One of the main storylines heading into Big Ten Media days in Chicago and the season revolves around the Nebraska football team.

Expectations are high with the goals of a conference championship and BCS Bowl berth.

But for the Huskers, they've continually come up short.

Head Coach Bo Pelini is back for his sixth season and while he's guided the Big Red to three conference championships, a title has been elusive.

Last season's 70-31 devastating loss to Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game sent shock waves through the program.

Though the team is focused on returning to Lucas Oil Stadium, they're not making any promises heading into the fall.

"If it's meant to be, it's meant to be," Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez said.  "I don't have much control over it.  I've played in two conference championships so far and we've lost both of those, so, we just have to keep hoping we win one."

"The way we need to go into this season is that every game that we play, we want to win," receiver Quincy Enunwa added.  "You know, I don't want to say we're going to win a championship, but if we play each game the way we should, hopefully the end result is a championship."

Nebraska's last title was in 1999.  NU opens the season Aug. 31 against Wyoming.
