LINCOLN, Neb. – Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya will be one of the better passers Nebraska will likely face in 2015.
The Huskers’ secondary will have to be up for the challenge on Saturday, after giving up over 300 yards to South Alabama in week two. This includes cornerback senoir corner Daniel Davie, who struggled with the Jaguars' receiving corps.
“I think Daniel is a good player,” said head coach Mike Riley. “He did struggle the other night. We’re going to try and help him out and get better this week and in doing that everybody else is going to get an opportunity, too.”
Nebraska secondary coach Brian Stewart says the “help,” will be in the form of getting Davie to be a better “finisher.”
“What you need is a guy that has awareness and resiliency; awareness enough to not let it happen again and be in a little better position and the resiliency to come back and play the next play,” said Riley regarding the cornerback spot. “That is why that position requires both a lot of physical and mental abilities to play it. I love it. Special guys have to play out there.”
