WATCH: DC Erik Chinander Talks Michigan, a New Blackshirt & More

September 18, 2018

Nebraska (0-2) hits the road on Saturday for the first time this season to face 19th-ranked Michigan (2-1) in the Big Ten opener for both teams. The Wolverines opened as an 18-point favorite.

Through two games Nebraska's defense has put up some impressive numbers in certain areas. The rush defense (2.71 yards per carry allowed) ranks 14th nationally, thanks in part to the Huskers also ranking second in the country at five sacks per game. Nebraska also ranks 54th against the pass and 31st in total defense based on yards per play.

Michigan enters Saturday's matchup with the 37th-ranked rushing offense, 36th in passing offense and 33rd in total offense.

Nebraska defensive coordinator Erik Chinander met with the media following the Huskers' Tuesday practice to discuss facing the Wolverines, bouncing back from the loss to Troy and more.

See his full comments below and check back throughout the day for more from Tuesday's practice.
