Good news on the injury front.
The Huskers will have their biggest defensive threat back on the field. Bo Pelini said Randy Gregory, who has played just in the opening series of the Florida Atlantic game will play at Fresno State. Pelini said Gregory looked great running on Sunday. The injury situation is a little muddy at wide receiver, where Kenny Bell, Sam Burtch and Brandon Reilly are listed as “day-to-day.” Bell left with a groin injury in the first quarter.
Senior offensive lineman Jake Cotton called his two penalties bone head plays.
Cotton was called for tripping in the third quarter, wiping out a Tommy Armstrong touchdown. NU had to settle for a field goal on the drive. Cotton was flagged in the fourth quarter as an ineligible man downfield, erasing a 41-yard pass from Armstrong to Jordan Westerkamp. Cotton said he thought Armstrong took off running and went off the crowd’s reaction. As one of the team captains, he said he has to lead better by example.
