Takeaways from talking with Bob Burton, Nebraska deputy AD, about the Akron cancellation. -The decision not to play on Sunday was made by Akron. "Difficult but doable," Burton said of the logistics of such a postponement. Nebraska wanted to play. -Burton does not know the status of Akron's $1.17 million guarantee. -Nebraska will begin this week to examine its options to find a 12th regular-season opponent. "We had 90,000 people there who wanted to see a game," he said, "so we'd like to make it up."
