QB Brad Kaaya would trade great stats for a W against Nebraska - Susan Miller Degnan, Miami Herald
Keeping with what we know about QB Brad Kaaya, he says that he would rather sacrifice good personal statistics for a W on Saturday. While that's a nice sentiment, the Canes will more than likely need a big day from Kaaya to emerge victorious against the Cornhuskers on Saturday afternoon.

On Wednesday, I wrote this piece about the numbers for the Canes, including some shockingly bad 3rd down conversion rates. Also on Wednesday, Matt Porter told us why the Canes themselves aren't worried about 3rd downs. A sort of unintentional point-counterpoint thing.
