The Nebraska defense must contain Tennessee dual threat quarterback Josh Dobbs when the teams meet in Friday’s Music City Bowl. Dobbs has accumulated nearly 3,400 yards of total offense this season while running for nine touchdowns and throwing for 26.
“You have got a senior quarterback who has been in the offense for quite some time and knows it inside and out”, said Nebraska defensive coordinator Mark Banker. “He is athletic and has a good arm. I think he is a really good quarterback.”
Dobbs became the Tennessee starter midway through his sophomore season and hopes to go out with a win.
“It would mean a lot to got out on a high note, get the victory and perform well during my last game”, said Dobbs. “We know they are going to be a tough and physical team and we are going to have to match that and come ready to play.”
