Bo Pelini announced that Chase Rome is back with the team. He’s been practicing this week after the sophomore defensive tackle left the team because of personal issues, but he is available to play tomorrow against Idaho State. It’s been confirmed by Pelini that offensive lineman Tyler Moore has transferred to a college near his home in Tampa, FL and Pelini said dealing or thinking about Moore was the least of his concerns. Moore left the Huskers in mid-August.

With the season ending injury to Zaire Anderson at the weak linebacker spot, Pelini said he plans to use sophomore Corey Cooper and redshirt freshman David Santos to fill that position, depending on what Idaho State throws at them. Pelini has been very impressed with the way Cooper, at 6’1, 210 pounds had responded at linebacker.
