Huskers Ready to Head to Iowa City

By NU Athletic Communications

Lincoln, Neb.- The Nebraska football team finished its week of preparation for Friday’s Legends Division showdown against Iowa Hawkeyes on Wednesday. The team practiced in jerseys and helmets for approximately 90 minutes, splitting time between the Hawks Championship Center and outside on the Ed and Joyanne Gass Practice Field.

Head Coach Bo Pelini addressed the media after practice, noting that he thought the team had a great practice on Wednesday.

“Well it’s been a short week, but we’ve got to be ready to go,” Pelini said, “I thought we had a really good day today.”

Pelini believes even though the team had a short week of practice, due to the Friday kickoff, the Huskers have responded well to the odd scheduled week.

“Yeah I thought we have had a good week, good attention to detail.” Pelini said, “We got a lot done, we had a little bit extra of walk through time today. I feel good where we are.”

With five wins in a row, Pelini believes his team has confidence heading into the final regular season game, hopefully leading to the Big Ten Championship game.

“I like their approach,” Pelini said, “I think they understand what we have in front of us, living in the here and now.”

From all of us here in the Nebraska Athletic Department and, we hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving.
