I feel like "University of Omaha" could sound big-time.  Look at all the other large universities that use the city name in them... NYU, Pittsburgh, Tulsa, Louisville, Cincinnati, etc.

I agree that NU won the game statistically... there isn't much arguing there.  My only point is that the ISU defense doesn't deserve to be short-changed by people stating that NU gave the game to them.
