Nebraska offensive tackle Alex Lewis talks about the Huskers matchup with South Alabama

Nebraska offensive tackle Alex Lewis talks about the Huskers' Saturday matchup with South Alabama.

LINCOLN, Neb. - Nebraska offensive tackle Alex Lewis will look to have his front five play at a higher level this week. The senior captain knows the offensive line didn't play well against BYU, but didn't want guys to dwell on it after the loss. 

Lewis, along with quarterback Tommy Armstrong, gave a speech to the team in the locker room after the BYU game. 

"We weren't physically dominated, or outmatched, we just hurt ourselves," said Lewis. 

Nebraska moves on to South Alabama later today. 

"They are fast and a lot of guys are talented," said Lewis. "With a (defensive) line like that, we have to go out and run the ball and establish it early." 

Lewis compared the Jags to McNeese State last year. 

The senior talked with reporters in the video above.
