Huskers Look Ahead to the Tigers

By NU Athletic Communications

Lincoln- The Nebraska football team practiced for just over two hours on Monday afternoon at the Ed and Joyanne Gass practice fields, just outside of the Hawks Championship Center, in a practice that Head Coach Bo Pelini said showed him a lot of good things.

"We had a pretty good day," Pelini said. "We got a lot done. We did a lot of good things. It was a pretty normal Monday for us."

Pelini also addressed injuries regarding defensive tackle Pierre Allen and offensive lineman Jeremiah Sirles.

"Sirles practiced today," Pelini said. "Pierre could have but we held him out."

Pelini spoke on the offensive line's play and the part they played in Saturday's win over Oklahoma State.

"You don't throw for as many yards as effectively as we did without good protection," he said. "At times we could have been better. He (Martinez) made a couple people miss in a few situations with recognition of some things, but the play was overall pretty good."

Pelini stated that this Saturday's match against sixth-ranked Missouri is just another game in a line of many that the Huskers need to win.

"They're all big games," he said. "This is the next game for us. Our guys are just worried about what to do today to keep getting better as a football team. If we do, we will be ready. The attitude is that you have to win every week."

The 12th-ranked Huskers play host to the Missouri Tigers Saturday and can be seen regionally on ABC at 2:30.
