Preview of #16 Nebraska At Wake Forest

By David

The #16- ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers travel to Winston-Salem, North Carolina this weekend to face off against the defending ACC champion Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

Nebraska is coming off of a week one thrashing of Nevada (52-10) and must increase their level of play this week if they intend to enter next Saturday's showdown against USC undefeated.

Wake Forest will utilize the services of a new quarterback for the second straight season in starter Brett Hodges who is replacing the injured Riley Skinner. Skinner separated his shoulder in last week's 38-28 loss to Boston College.

It will be a tremendous test for the sophomore signalcaller who will be opposed by the vaunted Huskers defense which permitted a mere 185 total yards to Nevada last week.

If Jim Grobe's team is to have any chance at pulling the upset they will have to improve upon the two yards of rushing they accumulated last week. "It was kind of a wake-up call on Saturday for our entire offense," Hodges said.
