Head coach Bo Pelini knows this Golden Eagles team is going to give them a good game. They were 12-2 and the Conference USA champions. While they have quite a few new faces on offense, defensively, their top three tacklers are back from last year and Rex Burkhead says they are fast.
The big question is how many and which true freshmen will play tomorrow. Pelini says an I-back and a couple of d-linemen will play for sure. Pelini talks more about the decision on playing or redshirting freshman.
