Q&A with Senior Mark Pelini

By NU Athletic Communications

Nebraska begins its 125th season of college football by playing host to Florida Atlantic on Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium. Kickoff for the Huskers' season opener is set for shortly after 2:30 p.m. 

Senior Mark Pelini has been a key member of the Nebraska offensive line the past two years, serving as the top reserve at center and seeing significant action. This season, the Youngstown, Ohio native, will look to help NU again field one of the nation's best rushing offenses. 

Pelini took some time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions to provide a little bit more insight about his life off the football field.
