JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars placed veteran running back Alfred Blue on injured reserve more than two weeks after he hurt his left ankle in a preseason game.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Even though Illinois and Nebraska have just three Big Ten wins between them, both enter their game Saturday believing they're on the verge of breakthroughs.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Its goal of a winning season long gone, Nebraska is shifting some attention to Devine Ozigbo and a couple of his teammates' pursuits of individual milestones.
Ozigbo needs 204 yards over the final three games to become the Cornhuskers' first 1,000-yard rusher since Ameer Abdullah in 2014. Since 1971, the Huskers have never gone four straight years without a player making it to 1,000.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Nebraska's Devine Ozigbo had to convince two coaching staffs that he should be the featured running back. Not until this year did the senior firmly establish himself in the job.
Nebraska (2-6, 1-4 Big Ten) at No. 8 Ohio State (7-1, 4-1, No. 10 CFP), Noon ET (FOX)
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska got what it wanted out of its game against Bethune-Cookman. The Cornhuskers won, nobody got hurt, and a lot of guys got to play.
Adrian Martinez passed for 213 yards and two touchdowns and Devine Ozigbo ran for 110 and another score — all in the first half — and Nebraska prepped for next week's road game against Ohio State with a 45-9 win Saturday.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — If Nebraska needs any extra incentive to pick up its elusive first win Saturday, players who were on the field against Minnesota last year need only remember what happened in that game.
The Gophers (3-3, 0-3 Big Ten), who visit Memorial Stadium on Saturday, rushed for 410 yards overall and also scored two touchdowns in the last 8 minutes in a 54-21 win.
"They kind of ran it up," running back Devine Ozigbo said.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska running back Greg Bell has left the team and received a release from his scholarship.
An athletic department spokesman said Friday night that Bell didn't make the trip for the Cornhuskers' game at No. 16 Wisconsin on Saturday and planned to transfer.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Devine Ozigbo's re-emergence at running back has prompted Nebraska to re-think its ground game.
The Cornhuskers entered the season planning to have one back get most of the carries, and Tre Bryant had consecutive 100-yard games before injuring his knee and missing the last two games.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska coach Mike Riley meant it when he said in the preseason that he wanted one of his three top running backs to do most of the work.
Tre Bryant has 51 carries in two games, Mikale Wilbon has five and Devine Ozigbo has none.
Purdue (3-3, 1-2 Big Ten) at No. 8 Nebraska (6-0, 3-0), 3:30 p.m. (ABC)
Line: Nebraska by 24.
Series Record: Tied 2-2.
WHAT'S AT STAKE
Purdue is trying to get through the season as best it can after firing Darrell Hazell last Sunday and naming receivers coach Gerad Parker the interim head coach. The Cornhuskers have won nine of 10 since losing 55-45 at Purdue last year. They can use this game as a final tuneup for back-to-back road games against No. 10 Wisconsin and No. 2 Ohio State.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska's fourth-quarter dominance showed up again Saturday. This time it was Terrell Newby leading the way.
The senior ran for 113 of his 140 yards and scored two touchdowns in the last 15 minutes, just in time for the 15th-ranked Cornhuskers to turn back Illinois' upset bid and win 31-16.
