09/09/13 - Nebraska's defense scored 73 seconds into Saturday's win over Southern Mississippi when cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste stepped in front of a pass and returned an interception 43 yards for a touchdown. The Cornhuskers' earliest score in a game since 1993 set the tone for the afternoon. Nebraska coach Bo Pelini was feeling much better about the Blackshirts after they were victimized by Wyoming in the opener. "I thought it was a lot cleaner than a week ago," Pelini said. "I saw a lot of progress. I saw a lot better communication. I saw a lot better understanding of our game plan -- therefore our preparation was better across the board." - The Sports Xchange
09/07/13 - Stanley Jean-Baptiste and Ciante Evans returned first-quarter interceptions for touchdowns and No. 22 Nebraska made quick work of Southern Mississippi in a 56-13 victory on Saturday night. Taylor Martinez threw for three touchdowns and Ameer Abdullah ran for two more for the Cornhuskers (2-0), who now turn their attention to next week's home game against No. 18 UCLA. Jean-Baptiste jumped in front of Rickey Bradley Jr. just as Allan Bridgford's pass arrived on the third play of the game and ran it back 43 yards.
Evans put the Huskers up 21-3 with the first of his two interceptions, catching a ball tipped by Tyre'oune Holmes and going 22 yards to the end zone. It was a solid rebound for a Nebraska defense that surrendered 602 yards in a 37-34 win over Wyoming last week. The Golden Eagles (0-2) lost their 14th straight, the longest losing streak in the FBS. - AP Sports
09/06/13 - Scouting the Nebraska pass defense: Nebraska's secondary was on its heels too much against Wyoming. When quarterback Brett Smith scrambled out of the pocket -- which was often -- his receivers adapted, too, while Nebraska's defensive backs were slow to adjust. "The deep routes became shallow routes, and shallow route became deep," secondary coach Terry Joseph said. Nebraska will be facing a less-mobile quarterback in Southern Miss senior Allen Bridgford, a Cal transfer, so the Huskers hope to "get home" more often when applying pressure. - The Sports Xchange
