Husker captain Jerald Foster ‘can’t wait’ to beat Iowa on Black Friday

November 19, 2018 GMT

Jerald Foster couldn’t wipe the smile off his face.

The senior guard had just completed his Memorial Stadium career with the wild 9-6 win over Michigan State. He was already looking forward to the final game of his career. He and the Huskers have some unfinished business with Iowa.

“I can’t wait to beat Iowa,” Foster said. “I really can’t.”

Nebraska hasn’t beaten the Hawkeyes since 2014, which means that neither Foster nor his classmates own a win over their biggest rival. Doing it Friday in Iowa City would cap a November surge. Losing Friday, however, would drop Nebraska to 4-8, matching last year’s record, the worst since 1961.


Foster hopes the Hawkeyes are excited for the matchup.

“I know I am. We’re gonna go up to Iowa and have some fun.”
