Husker coach Mike Riley says the off-season begins now and the game against UCLA gives them a chance to improve in two key areas that plagued them in a 5-7 regular season that failed to meet expectations.
“One of them is turnovers and the other one is we have to run the ball better”, said Riley. “We want to get up in that top three in rushing and we are in the middle of the conference so those are a couple of things that can help everything be better.”
UCLA is 8-4 and enters as a nearly touchdown favorite. Kickoff in Santa Clara is 8:15p.m. and the game will be carried by ESPN.
