The Cornhuskers will bring the No. 7-ranked total offense in the country into Manhattan and they also sport the No. 4-ranked scoring offense.

K-State coach Ron Prince addressed the media during his weekly press conference and talked about this lethal offense from Nebraska.

"This is an offense that is number one in total offense and is a terrific running team. They run for well over 200 yards a game, but also have terrific numbers in passing efficiency and is terrific in turnover margin. There are very few glaring weaknesses within this team. They can move the ball very effectively on offense upon their choosing – either to run or pass. They don't turn it over very often at all."

A lot of players showed up for this press conference, and here are some of the highlights from the media session.

Quarterback Josh Freeman on any ill feelings between himself and Nebraska

"I have respect for Coach Callahan and what he's done as a coach and I assume he respects me as a player. I don't feel like there's any bad blood between me and Nebraska – maybe the fans, but not the coaches."
Linebacker Zach Diles on the confidence of the defense

"We are pretty confident out there. We are getting more comfortable on the field and are out there running hard and playing hard together and it builds confidence."
Wide receiver Yamon Figurs on his confidence in quarterback Josh Freeman

"We had confidence in him at the Spring Game and in practice; we all know what he can do. He's got a great arm, he's got a cannon."
Safety Marcus Watts on the importance of special teams

"If you do well on special teams you will get a play on offense or defense. You could never get any snaps the whole year and have a great game on special teams and the coaches will find a way to put you in the game. That is what players strive for, to get in the game on offense or defense and in order to do that you need to play well on special teams."
