Nebraska continues Big Ten play against the No. 9 Ohio State Buckeyes under the lights of Memorial Stadium. The Huskers are currently 3-3 overall and 2-1 in Big Ten play after a 38-17 loss to Wisconsin last Saturday. Ohio State arrives at Memorial Stadium with a 5-1 record overall and a 3-0 mark in Big Ten play.
The Huskers expect to have running back Mikale Wilbon back by Saturday’s matchup, but running back Tre Bryant remains a mystery. He’s still recovering after aggravating a knee injury suffered against Oregon in Week 2. As for correcting some of the mistakes Nebraska made against Wisconsin, offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf and wide receivers coach Keith Williams plan to keep working on the drops and fixing that problem before the Ohio State matchup.

Nebraska-Ohio State preview
Nebraska and Ohio State will meet for the second straight year on Saturday, which also marks the fourth time the two have met as Big Ten opponents. The two will have to get used to seeing each other as well, as the Huskers and Buckeyes are set to meet each of the next four years.
Nebraska’s only win over Ohio State came on Oct. 8, 2011. The victory happened in Lincoln and was the Huskers’ first Big Ten home game after joining the conference. The Huskers rallied from a 27-6 deficit to win 34-27, which remains the largest comeback in school history.
Prior to the Huskers joining the Big Ten, Nebraska and Ohio State only met twice (in 1955 and 1956). Nebraska lost both of those meetings, which took place in Columbus, Ohio.
Nebraska may be a 24-point underdog Saturday night, but the matchup features two of college football’s historically great programs overall. When looking at most wins over the past 30, 40, 50 or 60 years, the Huskers and Buckeyes both rank in the top 4 in all of those categories. The two programs also boast a combined 11 national championships and 81 conference champions. Five of those national championship belong to Nebraska, as well as 46 conference titles.
Coach Mike Riley knows Ohio State is a physical team, which is something his group is preparing for.
“They’ve been hitting on all cylinders for sure,” Riley said at Monday’s news conference. “Defensively, playing fast, and they’re talented, and they play fast, and they’re well coached, and same thing offensively.”
While Riley understands fans may be frustrated by the loss to Wisconsin, he hopes the Huskers faithful can show up big for another game under the lights. It’s an important element and key to keeping Nebraska in the game, so he wants another exciting crowd Saturday night.
“That atmosphere, that kind of crowd, that kind of excitement is the identity of Nebraska, and the whole country sees it, and I know they’ll bring it again,” Riley said.
