Hoping for Rebound

A last minute scoring drive by Virginia Tech last week could be the turning point of the 2009 college football season for No. 25 Nebraska.

After a 16-15 loss on the road to the Hokies, the Cornhuskers look to rebound Saturday at 7PM ET when they host Louisiana-Lafayette from Memorial Stadium.
