Nebraska looks for better play vs. Iowa St in Big 12 opener

Sep 29, 2007 - 10:46 AM Iowa State (1-3) at No. 25 Nebraska (3-1) 2:05 pm EDT

LINCOLN, Nebraska (Ticker) -- Nebraska coach Bill Callahan better hope that his team's shaky play does not continue into Big 12 Conference action.

The 25th-ranked Cornhuskers open league play Saturday when they host Iowa State.

Nebraska opened the season with an easy win over Nevada, then eked out a victory at Wake Forest.

Two weeks ago, the Cornhuskers surrendered 313 rushing yards in a 49-31 home loss to No. 1 Southern California before needing a late rally for a 41-40 triumph over Ball State here last Saturday.

Arizona State transfer Sam Keller threw for 438 yards and three touchdowns with an interception for the Cornhuskers (3-1, 0-0 Big 12 North), who trailed by nine points with less than 10 minutes to play.

Nebraska scored the go-ahead points on Keller's 11-yard TD toss to Maurice Purify with 3:13 to play, then survived a missed 55-yard field goal by Ball State's Jake Hogue with 12 seconds left.

Under first-year coach Gene Chizik, Iowa State (1-3, 0-0 North) unexpectedly beat Iowa, 15-13, two weeks ago, but followed it up with a 36-35 loss at Toledo last Saturday in which it blew an 11-point lead in the final 5:25.

Bret Meyer threw for 251 yards and three TDs with one interception in the losing effort.

Nebraska has won 14 straight meetings with Iowa State at Memorial Stadium and has won 31 of its last 32 league openers.
