Nebraska football coach Matt Rhule says Maryland is as athletic and explosive as any team the Huskers will face this year.
He noted yesterday that the Terrapins will bring the Big Ten’s third-ranked offense to Lincoln on Saturday. He was asked why the Blackshirts had an off day in last Saturday’s loss at Michigan State.
“We’ve learned how to win, but winning in November is completely different,” Rhule said. “When you come in, they game plan you, they attack you, they take their best shots at you. We’re in man-to-man with a middle defender, they’re throwing posts down the middle of the field and we have to pick those balls off. They are plays I know our guys can make that we just didn’t go make them.”
Saturday’s kickoff is set for 11 a.m. The pregame starts at 7 a.m. on News Talk 900 KJSK. It will be joined at 10:30 on 93.5 The Hawk.
Also yesterday, it was announced the Huskers game at Wisconsin next Saturday will kick off at 6:30 p.m. and will be televised on NBC.
