Nebraska is currently fourth in the Big Ten in passing yards and will bolster their lineup this Saturday against No. 11 Wisconsin with the return of senior receiver Jordan Westerkamp.
The Chicago native has missed the last two games with a back injury. While his production is down in 2016 overall, Westerkamp still has four touchdown catches on in the year in five contests.
“I thought he might be a little rusty with his movement,” said Nebraska receivers coach Keith Williams. “But he doesn’t look like he’s laboring in anyway.
“He feels good. He fell down yesterday. Everyone one was holding their breath. He dove for no reason. I was like, ‘he’s back.’”
In two career contests against the Badgers, Westerkamp only has three catches for 23 yards.
Willliams touched on the Wisconsin secondary – a group that has only given up four passing touchdowns in seven games.
“They are athletic. Athletic guys are able to move around. Every route is not going to be wide open. It will be challenged,” said Williams. “This league is a physical league. Most of the DBs try to get physical with you.”
