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.

Lee has thrown for six touchdowns and 689 yards in Nebraska’s three games while Curenski Gilleylen leads Nebraska in receiving with 170 yards. On defense, the Huskers rank third in the Big XII Conference in points allowed.

The Cajuns enter Saturday’s game at 2-1, coming off a 31-3 loss at LSU last weekend. The Cajuns do hold a 17-15 win over Kansas State on the year, a fellow Big XII team. Quarterback Chris Masson has 627 yards passing with three touchdowns and three interceptions on the year while Undrea Sails has 240 yards rushing with two touchdowns.
