Huskers' Pelini says defense vs UCLA sickened him

Associated Press Published: September 11, 2012

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Bo Pelini still felt awful Monday, two days after Nebraska's defensive meltdown at UCLA.

Nebraska's coach says, "I've been sick to my stomach since that game."

The Cornhuskers (1-1) surrendered 653 yards — the second-most in program history — in the 36-30 loss that dropped them out of the Top 25.

Now they must prepare to face another spread offense when Arkansas State (1-1) visits Saturday. The Sun Belt Conference's Red Wolves feature one of the nation's top dual-threat quarterbacks in Ryan Aplin, who has opened the season with two straight 300-yard passing days.

Pelini looks at the game as additional preparation for Big Ten opponents that run the spread, like Ohio State and Northwestern.
