Nebraska's Receiver Problem May Have a Tight End Solution

October 3, 2019

Playing Ohio State had something to do with this, but a Nebraska receiver didn’t catch a ball until late in the third quarter Saturday. It was JD Spielman, who picked up 7 yards. It would be his only catch of the night. At that point in the game, the Buckeyes were up 48-0. “Unacceptable,” offensive coordinator Troy Walters called it Wednesday. 

Entering the game Spielman had at least two catches in each of his 25 career appearances at Nebraska. He’s on pace to become the only Nebraska player in school history to have 50 catches in three different seasons.
