Happier returns for Huskers
NU's Kenny Bell ranks 10th nationally and second in the Big Ten with an average of 30.6 yards per kickoff return. Assistant coach Rich Fisher expects opponents to start kicking away from Bell — and would like to see Ameer Abdullah as Bell's partner on returns.

LINCOLN — Nebraska junior Kenny Bell caught the game's opening kickoff two weekends ago, ran just to the right of his lead blockers and abruptly cut back left.
He couldn't tell in that moment (he rarely can), but he'd followed the play's design perfectly. Had a South Dakota State player not tripped him up, he would have been celebrating in the end zone.
