Nebraska defensive coordinator Mark Banker says the Huskers must limit big plays when they host 22nd ranked Oregon. The Ducks are averaging better than 48 points per game and 577 yards with their up-tempo style of offense.
Banker says a big play will ignite Oregon’s hurry up style and it will often result in a defense making a mistake.
“Because it is controlled mayhem and that is what ends up happening”, said Banker. “It is kind of sleight of hand and basketball on grass and then if they do get a big play bang, they are at the line of scrimmage and they are coming at you.”
Husker safety Kieron Williams says they have been preparing for the fast tempo and says the Ducks’ offense tries to get a defense to make alignment mistakes.
“We are definitely going to get ready for it because we know that is the thing that they do”, said Williams. “They try to make you make mistakes.”
