Following a season-opening loss to Northwestern, Nebraska offensive coordinator Mark Whipple had preached to his unit about finishing the game better against North Dakota. The Huskers did just that last Saturday, turning a 7-7 halftime tie into a 38-17 victory.
Whipple was especially pleased with how his offense handled the adversity after the Hawks defense came up with an interception. “They responded at that point,” Whipple said. “Those guys knew what they had to do and talked about finishing. I could hear them on the sideline and that’s what they did.”
Nebraska hosts Georgia Southern on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. The pregame begins at 2:30 p.m. on News Talk 900 KJSK. It will be joined at 6 p.m. on 93.5 The Hawk.
