Last week Nebraska had a bye week after being drubbed by Ohio State 56-14. The week off came at a perfect time to get a mental and physical break for a team in desperate need of both. Now it’s time to take on Purdue in a night game on the road on Halloween weekend in what has become a huge game for the Huskers.

First, your TV information for Nebraska vs Purdue:

Where: Ross-Ade Stadium, Lincoln Neb.
When: Saturday, October 28, at 6:30p.m. CT

What They’re Saying

Mike Riley on the mental state of the team:

“For some of the guys, the bye week was really good physically. For our team, with where we are, it was really good to get a few days away from us and football. I think the practices that we did have I see as kind of a release to get out there and get to play without a game right in front of you. We interacted and played offense against defense most of the time during that time without scout teams so they could just play football and coaches could coach, and hopefully technically help guys grow in some of the things they needed to improve on. We could get a little bit better idea of how we can move forward.”

Bob Diaco on his excitement for the future:

“There is no doubt that we are going to create a great defense. We are going to create the best defense in the country. There’s no doubt about that. It’s just going to take time as these gaps are eliminated and minimized for every player. And the players are good enough to do just that. The ones on the team and the ones we’re trying to have join the team, so it’s exciting. The future is exciting.”

Tanner Lee on the negative media about coaches:

“I think I just see Coach Riley doing a great job, you know, controlling the team and the message that he has put into our locker room. I think the biggest thing for us is that we are focused on us as a team and really not anything else. We are focused on what it is going to take to win this week. And know that our coaches are going to be focused on that 100 percent because they have been week in and week out. Their consistency is something that drew me to Nebraska and something that makes me really glad that I am here day in and day out.”
