Nebraska coach Mike Riley says the Huskers are working on taking what the defense gives them as they prepare for Saturday’s Foster Farms Bowl against UCLA. Much of that hinges on the decision making of quarterback Tommy Armstrong.
The junior accumulated more than three thousand yards of total offense but he was intercepted 16 times, including four in a season ending loss to Iowa. The Huskers were a minus 13 in turnovers in a 5-7 regular season but Riley believes it is an issue that can be fixed.
“You have to be invested, you have to study and I think Tommy has those kind of characteristics that give him a chance to make a turnaround”, said Riley. I feel great about our opportunity to help make that better.”
The Huskers will conduct the second of four bowl practices in the Bay Area later today at Laney College in Oakland.
