Nebraska defensive coordinator John Papuchis hopes the Husker defense keeps up its intensity for Saturday’s matchup in Minneapolis, as the Blackshirts are preparing for the Gophers two- quarterback system.
Minnesota uses both sophomore Philip Nelson and freshman Mitch Leidner in their quarterback rotation. Leidner is more of a rushing threat, racking up 344 yards rushing (second on team) with five touchdowns (tied for team lead). Nelson, on the other hand, is more of a pass first quarterback, throwing for 492 yards completing just under 54 percent of his passes.
