Huskers Ready for First Road Test

By NU Athletic Communications

Lincoln - Nebraska Coach Bo Pelini and the Huskers met with members of the media Monday at Memorial Stadium to discuss Saturday's Big Ten Conference road opener at Purdue.

Kickoff between the Huskers (4-1) and the Boilermakers (1-4) is set for 11 a.m. with live television coverage on the Big Ten Network.

Saturday's game marks the first meeting between Nebraska and Purdue as Big Ten opponents, and just the second overall in the history of the two programs. The only other meeting between the Big Red and the Boilermakers came in 1958, when the Huskers were shut out by Purdue in West Lafayette, Ind.

The Boilermakers will have their hands full in matching that feat, as Nebraska heads into Saturday's game at Ross-Ade Stadium averaging better than 42 points and 500 yards per game.

A full transcript of Coach Pelini's session with the media, along with full quotes from junior wide receiver Kenny Bell, sophomore defensive end Randy Gregory, junior safety Corey Cooper, redshirt freshman quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr, senior wide receiver Quincy Enunwa and junior I-Back Ameer Abdullah are available in the links below.
