I would say the same thing about our staff, but everyone has to take it up a notch and we got to get moving in the right direction.

Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee said he sensed some panic after he threw the first pick-six on the game's opening drive. Except in this case, he threw them to the wrong team. "That was a tough way to start a game, but you've got to think that we are able to drive the ball and put it behind us". He also had two rushing touchdowns. "I don't care if we're playing the Green Bay Packers or whatever, it should be about us knowing we can be better", Riley said.

"I've said, and I won't back down on this, I like this team and I like their work ethic", he said.

In fact, the 112 yards returned the other way trumped Lee's 96 yards passing in that first quarter.

"We'll watch the film and we'll be ready to play", Ketter said.

The Cornhuskers will get a third look at an up-tempo spread offense in as many weeks against the Huskies, who bounced back from a 23-20 loss at home to Boston College by dominating FCS foe Eastern Illinois 38-10 last weekend. In addition to being without their starting quarterback this weekend, Northern Illinois lost leading receiver Chad Beebe - son of former National Football League player Don Beebe and a fifth-year senior who missed all of last season with multiple leg injuries - for 3-4 weeks with a concussion he suffered on a helmet-to-helmet hit versus Eastern Illinois.

Nebraska got a break when freshman Marquel Dismuke recovered a fumble at the Northern Illinois 2-yard line after Jalen Embry muffed a punt at the 25. The Huskies were far from ideal, however, committing 15 penalties for 194 yards, while Hagan had field-goal attempts from 39 and 30 yards blocked.

Lee was sacked three times and pressured or walloped a dozen more times.

Senior placekicker Drew Brown came on to try a 37-yard field goal on the final play of the first half, but senior defensive tackle William Lee got a hand on the ball and the attempt fell well short of the uprights.

The Huskies come to Lincoln as 14-point underdogs and with a belief they can win.

Nebraska had two chances to answer down the stretch, the first drive ended with an incomplete pass on 4th-and-7 at the NIU 33 with 5:31 left. That makes Nebraska just 3-6 in its past nine games.

Lee capped a 63-yard drive when he called his own number from the 1 to give the Cornhuskers their first lead 17-14 with 11:14 remaining before the Huskies retook the lead 21-17 on Huff's 2-yard run six plays later.

I haven't played a great deal but have been around the conditions and have adapted to the style I guess. Try to stay pretty open minded.

Ketter said that the friendships he has made as a Husker football player have stood out to him. It did, to the point where the Huskers grabbed a 17-14 lead in the fourth quarter.
