The Nebraska football team was business as usual as it hit the practice fields on Tuesday for a 2 hour workout inside the Hawks Championships Center. The Huskers turned their focus solely on their upcoming opponent, Texas A&M, which Nebraska will face in a 1:05 p.m. kickoff inside Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

The NU defense took time preparing for the Aggies’ noted option attack, which has played a big role in helping them gain 246 yards per game on the ground, which is good for seventh nationally.

“They’re a big option team, and they’ll do it in all formations and all groupings,” Defensive Coordinator Kevin Cosgrove said. “Option is responsibility football, so we’ve got to do a good job of taking care of responsibilities.”

On the other side of the ball, the Husker offense took time preparing for the Aggie defense and its bend-but-don’t-break philosophy.

“They rally to the ball, they’re very assignment-sound,” Offensive Coordinator Shawn Watson said. “They don’t get out of position, they run a scheme where they try to keep everything hemmed up in front of them, and they make you earn your way down the field.”

“They’re probably what you expect from A&M,” Watson added. “They’ve got great skill, good players and are well coached. You have respect for the way they play team defense. They’re a challenge, like everybody in this league.”

Nebraska will continue its weekly practice schedule on Wednesday from 3:40 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in preparation for the first of two remaining home games in Lincoln in 2007.
