A couple of notes:
>> There are nine true freshmen and 10 more redshirt freshmen who made the trip.
>> Sophomore safety JoJo Domann is not on the 74-man roster. He did not play in last week's game against Troy either.
>> After getting a waiver to be immediately eligible this season following a transfer from Ole Miss, linebacker Breon Dixon has yet to appear in a single game. He's likely heading for a redshirt season.
>> There are a handful of walk-ons who made the trip as well, including corner Ethan Cox, wideouts Kade Warner and Todd Honas, and offensive lineman Trent Hixson. (Obviously, quarterbacks Andrew Bunch and Matt Masker are in Ann Arbor, too.)
>> There are nine wide receivers who made the trip. During the week, offensive coordinator and wideout coach Troy Walters said he had hoped to have more of a rotation at the position to this point in the season and that Nebraska will need more guys to step up and allow starters Stanley Morgan Jr. and JD Spielman more time to rest.
>> Fourteen defensive backs made the trip.
