NEBRASKA LOOKING TO NEW ORLEANS: Nebraska Associate AD/Football Operations Jeff Jamrog yesterday said that “all signs point to the 2013 Nebraska-Southern Mississippi game being played in New Orleans.” He added that it would “be a night game at the Superdome on Sept. 7.” In Omaha, Kaipust & McKewon note the schools “have been working on an agreement for several months to move the game from Hattiesburg.” It is part of “a three-game agreement between the Huskers and Golden Eagles that will bring Southern Miss to Lincoln on Saturday and again in 2015.” Southern Miss AD Jeff Hammond said that moving the game “could mean between $1.2 million and $1.5 million in revenue for his school.” The Eagles “reportedly cleared $400,000 when they hosted the Huskers in 2003” (OMAHA WORLD-HERALD, 8/30).
