The Nebraska football team held a 45-minute walkthrough at the Hawks Championship Center on Wednesday as the Huskers prepare for their Black Friday matchup against Iowa. Head Coach Bo Pelini spoke to the media afterwards.
“We had a good week,” Pelini said. “(It was) a short week, but we had good attention to detail. I think the kids have a pretty good feel for what we are trying to get accomplished. We’ll finish it up tomorrow and get ready to go.”
Pelini said that no one has been officially ruled out for the game, adding that defensive end Randy Gregory as well as wide receivers Kenny Bell and Alonzo Moore are all “50/50.”
Pelini addressed the challenges of the week, saying, “We moved things up a day. We gave them Sunday off. We’ve been through this before, so I like our schedule. We’ll be ready to go.”
In addition, Pelini talked about the team’s visit to local hospitals on Wednesday.
“It’s big for us,” Pelini said. “It’s not mandatory. They go because they want to go. Some guys couldn’t, because obviously treatments and things like that. I think it was well-represented. Giving back to our community is important to our kids. They do it all year round.”
The Huskers and Hawkeyes face off on Friday at 11 a.m. (CT) at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, Iowa on ABC.
