‘Reset, refocus and improve’: Nebraska football prepares for Indiana game

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Husker football head coach Mickey Joseph says this week is an opportunity for the team to “reset, refocus and improve.”

Nebraska is also preparing to face its second Big 10 conference opponent of the season with Indiana on Saturday.

“As we get back into Big Ten play, our kids have to look at this as a fresh start,” Joseph said during a Tuesday press conference.

He added that Indiana, who currently sits at 3-1, presents “a lot of problems” for the Huskers.

“They’re the third fastest team in the county snapping the ball, so they’re going to be a problem for our defense,” Joseph said.

And that defense will now be helmed by Bill Busch, who was tasked with the role after the firing of Erik Chinander.

Joseph said the players have been “receptive” to the changes made on defense.

“The kids have bought in,” he said.  “With everything that they’ve been through they’ve been great.”

Joseph said the Huskers’ number one goal right now is to beat Indiana so that the team can get some confidence back.

Nebraska has been winless since a week two victory over North Dakota.

“Beating Indiana is the number one goal, but it’s really important for this football team, just to get some confidence that they can start something and finish it,” Joseph said.

Nebraska and Indiana will face off in Memorial Stadium on Saturday at 6:30 p.m.

The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network.
