Nebraska's Secondary Looks to Build on Illinois Performance against Ohio State

September 24, 2019

If you throw at Dicaprio Bootle once, he feels disrespected. Don’t throw his way at all. Last year, the cornerback tied for 10th nationally in pass break-ups; his 15 in 12 games led all Big Ten players. Teams threw at him and as the season progressed and Bootle grew into his role, it began to go poorly for them. 

This year, Bootle has four PBUs in four games. Teams are throwing at his cross-field teammate instead. As a result, no one in the country has more pass break-ups through four than Lamar Jackson.
