LINCOLN — As Nebraska ramps down training camp and starts turning its attention to Wyoming, NU defensive coordinator John Papuchis remains, like head coach Bo Pelini, full throttle on playing as many guys as possible early in the season.

“It's discipline on our part as much as anything else, because if things are going well, sometimes you have a tendency to lean toward the guys who are in the game,” Papuchis said after Thursday's workout. “Bottom line is: We gotta find out more about our guys in game situations. We don't have the benefit of preseason. I want to play a lot of guys. We gotta track how many reps those guys are getting and make sure we get a thorough gameday evaluation.”
