LINCOLN, Neb. – After a three turnover performance against Colorado to open the season, Nebraska has refocused on ball security during practice this week.

"Yeah, every week we have ball security drills," offensive coordinator Troy Walters said. "I think at times guys just kind of take that lightly, they kind of go through the motions. We’ve made it a point of emphasis this week.

"Everything that we do matters. The ball security, we can’t take it for granted. We’re talking three points of pressure. Wrists, high above the elbows. So we’ve focused on that this week, and the guys responded. We shouldn’t see any fumbles Saturday."
