Nebraska’s offensive line will try to slow down one of the nation’s best pass rushers in Saturday’s opener againstr Arkansas State. Senior defensive end Ja’Von Rolland-Jones enters the season as the school and Sun Belt Conference all-time leader with 30 and-a-half career sacks.
“The guy is a good pass rusher”, said Husker offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf. “We are going to have to have a lot of help knowing where he is in making sure we are getting him covered up and not letting him go to town.”
Langsdorf says a balanced attack by the offense will help slow the pass rush.
The Red Wolves have several new players in the secondary but Arkansas state defensive coordinator Joe Cauthen likes the depth and potential.
“This is a different team and that is the challenge you have every year”, said Cauthen. “I like the competitive nature of our defense. I think we are competitive at the point of attack and I am looking for guys that want to compete every single day.”
