Lincoln - Coach Bo Pelini and members of the Nebraska football team met the media on Tuesday at Memorial Stadium to discuss Saturday's Big 12 showdown at No. 17 Oklahoma State.
The No. 15 Huskers will take on the Cowboys at Boone Pickens Stadium with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff scheduled to be televised live regionally by ABC-HD.
Nebraska (5-1, 1-1 Big 12) will be looking to bounce back from its first loss of the season, a 20-13 setback to Texas last Saturday in Lincoln. Oklahoma State (6-0, 2-0) heads into the matchup unbeaten and sporting one of the nation's most explosive offensive units.
Pelini said he didn't expect to see any ill effects from last week's loss; rather, he expects the Huskers to refocus and play well.
"I think they are anxious this week to get back out there and play," Pelini said. "Most of our guys are embarrassed by how they played because we didn't play like us. We didn't coach well enough and we didn't execute well enough. This Saturday gives us the next opportunity to get it right again. I think everyone's anxious to get out there and play again, but you've got to earn it during the week."
