Some quick news and notes from Mike Riley’s meeting with the media after Nebraska’s final practice before Saturday’s matchup with the Oregon Ducks.
- Riley stated that senior WR Brandon Reilly will be ‘questionable at best’ with a hamstring injury he suffered against Wyoming last week. DL Mick Stoltenberg should be back after a knee issue. WR Alonzo Moore is battling a shoulder issue, but should play as well.
- Riley stated that freshman CB Lamar Jackson practiced full speed and will be able to help out in the Nebraska secondary Saturday. Jackson injured his quad early vs. Wyoming.
- Zack Darlington, the Huskers ‘emergency quarterback’ at 4th string, has gotten to play the role of Oregon starting QB Dakota Prukop this week in practice.
- The officials for the game will be brought in by the Pac-12, something that Riley did bring up. An officiating crew set with the speed of the Oregon offense is not the most favorable matchup for the Huskers, but Riley will meet before the game with the crew.
The Huskers and Ducks meet up at 2:30 central in Lincoln Saturday. You should watch!
