Pelini sees 'marked jump' from defense; Huskers go back to basics in practice
Nebraska coach Bo Pelini gives a pep talk to cornerback Josh Mitchell before the South Dakota State game. “I've seen a lot of guys that they have that look in their eye that we've been missing,” Mitchell said. “There's a lot of guys out here that they're tired of all the noise and all the nonsense, and they realize that talking about it ain't going to do anything. So what I see around here is a lot of guys that are more focused.”

LINCOLN — Nebraska hopes that a week not focused on game planning will benefit a team working to reach its potential.
The Huskers spent extended time in individual drills Wednesday, emphasizing fundamentals. They suited up in full pads and tackled one another more than usual — during scout team work and during the top unit's game-like situations. They conducted a live scrimmage, too.
