Nebraska Begins Preparation for Washington

By NU Athletic Communications

Lincoln- The Nebraska football team practiced for just over two hours Monday afternoon inside the Hawks Championship Center as they begin preparations for the Washington Huskies in Seattle. After practice, Head Coach Bo Pelini addressed the media.  

"It was a typical Monday practice," Pelini told. "It was pretty good tempo and it went pretty good."

After what some had considered a mistake ridden game on the offensive side, Pelini commented on what he saw out of the offense in their first practice since Saturday's game against Idaho.

"These were some of the things we worked on today," Pelini said. "We drilled it into them and we will get it corrected."

The tide of questions then turned to the upcoming game at Washington, and if there is an elevated anticipation for the Husker's first road game.

"There is an elevated anticipation anytime that we play a football game," Pelini said. "Whether we are at home or on the road or wherever."

When asked if Jake Locker reminded Pelini of any other quarterbacks, he was sure to not sell Locker short.

"I think Locker is a guy onto himself," Pelini said. "He is very talented. He can run, he can throw and he is a pretty highly rated guy. He is a good football player."

The Huskers will continue their preparations in anticipation for Washington Tuesday afternoon.
