LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Mauro Bondi embraces the challenge of following two Nebraska kickers who combined to make 84 percent of their field goals over the past five seasons.
Bondi will go into his sophomore season with a lock on the job and will have it for three years unless someone beats him out. He also is auditioning to punt.
He says he's eager to show off the strong leg that made him a scholarship recruit out of Boca Raton, Fla. Special teams coach Ross Els said he hopes Bondi doesn't get caught up in trying to outdo predecessors Alex Henery and Brett Maher.
