OMAHA, Neb. (AP) â€” A major Nebraska health insurer has been unable to come to terms with one of the state's biggest medical networks, so thousands of people are either facing significantly higher costs or changing doctors.
No talks have been held since the contract between Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska and Catholic Health Initiatives expired Sept. 1. So the facilities and doctors affiliated with Catholic Health Initiatives are no longer part of the Blue Cross network.
A look at last 5 games between Miami and Nebraska
Miami and Nebraska have played 10 times in football, with each team winning five games. The last five meetings have been in bowl games, and four decided national championships. Here's what happened:
Miami (2-1) at No. 24 Nebraska (3-0), 8 p.m. (ESPN2)
Line: Nebraska by 7 Â˝.
Series Record: Tied 5-5.
WHAT'S AT STAKE
Miami believes it's a better team than the one that lost at Louisville in its opener. There's no better way to find out than playing on the road in front of 90,000 fans, many of whom remember the days when the Hurricanes beat their Cornhuskers regularly in bowl games. Nebraska's best test came from FCS McNeese State, and it barely escaped. The Huskers could use a solid win over a quality opponent before Big Ten play begins.
