Lincoln - Coach Bo Pelini and the Huskers met with the media at Memorial Stadium on Tuesday to discuss Saturday's Big 12 North battle with unbeaten Missouri.
The No. 14 Huskers will take on the No. 7 Tigers at Memorial Stadium with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff scheduled to be televised live regionally by ABC-HD.
Nebraska (6-1, 2-1 Big 12) will be hoping to hand their second straight undefeated foe their first loss of the season. Last week, the Huskers gave Oklahoma State its first setback with a 51-41 victory in Stillwater.
The game between the Huskers and Tigers has major implications in the Big 12 North standings, with an NU victory pulling Nebraska even with MU atop the division standings.
Nebraska Coach Bo Pelini downplayed the big-game implications of the match-up.
"It is the next game and it's a big football game," Pelini said. "To me they are all big when you get to this point of the season. You've got to win, and they create a great challenge and obviously there are some things at stake. But you can pile all of those things up on top and it comes down to execution and playing football, and the team that makes the most plays is going to be winning that game."
