Callahan on recruiting visits this weekend: "It's really key in the sense that we have a number of players coming in town. I believe we have seven players coming in on official visits"

"It's a great atmosphere to be involved in and to be around. And for a recruit to come to the University of  Nebraska for a Saturday night game will be thrilling for them."

Callahan on what he's doing before game: "Preparing, just preparing on the game-plan sheet and make calls. That's what I've normally done."

"I usually get to the stadium four hours before the game, so this will be a little different for me. Evidently, we are leaving about two and a half hours prior to the game, so this will be a little bit different."

"That should allow us an opportunity to spend some time with the recruits that we have in town and a little extra time in preparation for the game as well.
