As we reported yesterday, senior offensive tackle Lydon Murtha is expected to start this weekend against New Mexico State. Also potentially going will be junior safety Rickey Thenarse. Thenarse has been sidelined, stemming from an injury on the first kickoff for the Huskers against San Jose State, but he's slowly been making it back. Head Coach Bo Pelini said that he hopes that they won't need Thenarse for the game. "I think he'll be available," Pelini said of Thenarse. "Hopefully we won't have to use him. We'll see."
Coach Pelini said that they are expecting five official visitors
this weekend, but if you check out the latest
updates from Big Red Report, the situation with two of the
potential visitors has changed. Based on everything we know as of right now the
list of those expected to come in is down to three:
Athlete Rex Burkhead,
Cornerback Gabe Lynn and Tight End J.T. Kerr.
