On Saturday morning, ESPN’s College GameDay kicked off from Baton Rouge before a huge SEC battle between No. 5 LSU and No. 7 Florida.
Before the game kicks off, ESPN interviewed LSU quarterback Joe Burrow. Burrow was asked about the history of athletes in his family.
The quarterback noted his grandmother dropped 82 points in a basketball game. His father and uncle also played football at Nebraska, which prompted a question about the Huskers interest in Burrow as a recruit.
He immediately said “none,” with a sheepish smile on his face, indicating Nebraska didn’t care for him.
Based on the way Joe Burrow smiled and said “none” when asked about Nebraska’s interest in him out of high school makes me wish there was an LSU-Nebraska game on the schedule.

In fact, Nebraska did not offer Burrow coming out of high school. The former four-star recruit decided to take his talents to Ohio State instead.
The former Buckeyes quarterback transferred to LSU and has the Tigers’ offense firing on all cylinders. LSU has the No. 1 scoring offense in the nation, a significant change from past LSU offenses that looked stuck in the stone age.
The Tigers will face their toughest test of the season on Saturday night against the Gators. Florida boasts one of the best defenses in the country, which will provide for a great battle tonight.
Florida and LSU kick off at 8:00 p.m. ET.
