Huskers shifting their focus to Ohio State
LINCOLN, Ne (FOX42KPTM)- Despite a tough overtime loss to Wisconsin on Saturday, the Huskers are still in the top ten.
"We felt like we should have come out of that game with a win," Coach Mike Riley said.
The Big Red will have another Big Ten battle this weekend when the team plays Ohio State. If the Huskers win they could keep control of their own destiny in the Big Ten West.
Nebraska plans to work on its passing game since Quarterback Tommy Armstrong only completed 12 of his 31 throws on Saturday. There were also two costly turnovers in the game.
It's still unclear if Nebraska Tight End Cethan Carter will be available for Saturday's game. He is recovering from an elbow injury.
The Huskers are getting some national recognition for their work. Head Coach Mike Riley is on the watch list for a coaching award for leadership and integrity. Senior Nate Gerry is also on a watch list for defensive player of the year.
The College Football Playoff selection committee will release its first set of rankings on Tuesday.
