No. 16 Nebraska wants no late drama vs Minnesota

Tools

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska coach Bo Pelini joked about the priority listed atop his game plan for Minnesota. He said he doesn't want his team to be two touchdowns behind at halftime.

The No. 16 Cornhuskers (8-2, 5-1 Big Ten) have come back from double-digit, second-half deficits to win four games.

The Huskers would assure themselves of playing Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game Dec. 1 in Indianapolis with a win Saturday over Minnesota (6-4, 2-4) and another next week at Iowa.

Minnesota became bowl-eligible last week. The Gophers are battling injuries on the offensive side. Freshman Philip Nelson is 2-2 as the Gophers' third starting quarterback.

The Gophers are allowing 336 yards and 22.3 points a game. Those numbers were 431 yards and 34.5 points through 10 games a year ago.
