McBride talks two-gap

Nebraska enters 2012 with question marks at every level defensively but the biggest one, the linchpin to Bo Pelini’s entire scheme, is at defensive tackle. This is the first year since Pelini arrived in Lincoln where he doesn’t have either a burgeoning or bona fide superstar at defensive tackle. In 2008 and 2009 it was Ndamukong Suh.
