Oh, and I just read this a minute ago, not sure if it's been addressed.
Daniel says Husker spit on him

ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
LINCOLN, Neb. — Between comments coming from the Nebraska camp and Mizzou's 30-year stretch of futility here entering Saturday's game, MU quarterback Chase Daniel said he already was as fired up as he'd ever been for a football game.
But when a Nebraska player spit on him in pre-game warm-ups, Daniel took it all the more personally.
"Nebraska was definitely one of the dirtiest teams I've (ever) played," Daniel said after MU's victory, adding, "You've got to settle it on the field, and I think we more than did that tonight."
The Huskers repeatedly hit him late, in addition to the unidentified player spitting on a helmet-less Daniel.
"I never (had that) done before. I'm not going to say who it was," Daniel said. "He knows who it was and that's bush league."
Daniel also said Nebraska players were throwing balls at Tiger players during warm-ups.
"They wanted to shut us down," he said. "I think that ended within a minute of the game (starting)."
