Ready for Iowa State

You can bet it's been an intense practice this week. You can bet that there has been a lot of rehashing of how they do certain things. All that and only four days to do it. But Bo Pelini said after practice today that they are on the right track. It's now just about getting out there and getting better.

Post Practice Notes:

- Senior wide receiver Chris Brooks will not play this weekend. Pelini said after practice today that he is hampered by back pain, but doesn't think it's anything serious.

- Roy Helu Jr. has wore the green jersey most of this week, after having missed the first day of practice following Texas Tech. But he's expected to play and start this weekend

- Also donning the green jersey most of this week has been cornerback Alfonzo Dennard. But he too, is expected to play against Iowa State

- No longer practicing or part of the active squad is Blake Lawrence, whose days as a football player for the Huskers are done. Lawrence issued a statement to the media today, outlining his decision which was based on four concussions he said he's had over the last 18 months. Lawrence will stay on, however, as a type of an assistant to the team.
