As the Huskers get ready for their first road game in week two against UCLA, there’s a very good chance that the team will be without Rex Burkhead. The good news from Bo Pelini, is he says, no surgery will be required.
If there is one positive out of this injury to Burkhead, there won’t be much concern of a drop off in production at the I-back position once Burkhead graduates. We saw the type of things Tim Beck saw from Abduallah when he recruited him out of Homewood, Alabama.
As far as the defense, even though there were some breakdowns, Pelini is confident this group is on the right path.
