The Huskers have been hard at work preparing for the matchup this weekend against Penn State. On Wednesday afternoon they all practiced in should pads and helmets for more than two hours both inside and outside.
John Papuchis, the Defensive Coordinator for the Huskers, talked to the media once the practice was done, and admitted that the Huskers would have a lot of work to take care of in order to slow down the defense that Penn State has.
The Penn State defense is often described as pro-like due to some of the great players that they have been able to recruit in the past couple of years. Papuchis admits that this is going to be a challenge for the Huskers to deal with.
According to Papuchis, it is very likely that you will see many different matchups in personnel during this game and at times may see three linebackers out on the field when they play against the Nittany Lions.
The Huskers plan to go through one more practice on Thursday evening before hitting the road to Penn State. The game will be shown on the Big Ten Network at 2:30 central time on Saturday.
