(Oklahoma City-AP) -- While many Oklahoma fans are rejoicing the fact that the O-U - Nebraska game is nationally important again, some Cornhuskers can't relate.

Nebraska defensive tackle Jeremy Slechta says the Sooner-Cornhusker games are something older people talk about.

But Nebraska tailback Dan Alexander realizes there is something special happening, saying there's a foggy mystique surrounding the game.

Oklahoma center Bubba Burcham remembers when the game was significant on the national scene, and says the Sooners want to get that rivalry back.
