Nebraska offensive coordinator Mark Whipple met with the media following Wednesday’s practice. As his team prepares to host No. 17 Illinois on Saturday, Whipple said the bye week benefited the Huskers.
“We practice last week, you know light and cleaned up some things,” Whipple said. “I think the break helped them. They’ve got a little more bounce in their step.”
Saturday’s kickoff is at 2:30 p.m. The pregame starts at 10:30 a.m. on News Talk 900 KJSK. It will be joined at 2 p.m. on 93.5 The Hawk.
