Nebraska coach Mike Riley says the Husker offense will need more balance when they visit Minnesota. After surpassing more than 300 yards through the air in each of the first four games the aerial attack has suffered in Big Ten play.
Junior quarterback Tommy Armstrong has completed only 36 percent of his passes in the last two games for a total of 234 yards.
“We have lost our ability to have effective balance”, said Riley. “We ran the ball o.k. but our inability to have balance with the passing game is evident. We have ample weapons and need to get them the ball effectively.”
The Huskers are 2-4 after a 23-21 loss to Wisconsin and visit a Minnesota team that is 4-2 following a 41-13 win at Purdue.
