|The Huskers are 3-6 for the first time, since|
1958. Before many College Football fans time,
but they have three more games to play,
with #7 Michigan State coming to Lincoln.
Defensive Coordinator Mark Banker spoke to the media following practice highlighting some key contributors that, despite the loss, stepped up during the Purdue game, including true freshman safety Aaron Williams.
“Aaron Williams, nobody’s spoken about Aaron Williams,” Banker said. “Aaron Williams went in there last week as a true freshman, and I’ll tell you what, that young man showed up. He showed up in the pass game, he showed up in the run game."
"He got beat on a pass that they threw over the top. It was a good pass. It was 6-4 against 5-11, but he was there, he was in position, he was looking for the ball, trying to make a play on it and didn’t, but we’ll live with that.”
Banker did not overlook the fact that the Huskers face an undefeated #7 Michigan State (8-0, 4-0 B1G West) squad on Saturday led by senior quarterback Connor Cook.
