On Monday, head coach Bo Pelini was asked about the his talented freshman duo and their difficult week against the Jackrabbits.
"For a lot of different reasons. It's growth. It's experience. There are a lot of things involved," said Pelini. "There are a lot of things coming at them very fast. It's not done in a day. You don't build it in a day. It's a process. We just continue it and keep working. There's not a guy on our football team that's got it all figured out. There's not a guy who has reached his potential. Every single day the approach has to be to get better."
