LINCOLN, Neb. (KTIV) -

You've heard it a million times by now: defense wins championships.

If you're a Nebraska fan there's a good chance you watched Saturday's game and said to yourself there's a long way to go. You weren't alone. The coaches did, too.

After surrendering more than 600 yards off offense to Wyoming, the Blackshirts will be tested again the next few weeks.

Southern Miss loss to Texas State in it's opener, but still racked up 400 yards off offense along the way.UCLA had nearly 700 yards of offense against Nevada.  South Dakota State logged 546 in its win over Butler.

Fixing things was all the talk during Monday's press conference.

"There's obviously some adjustments that need to be made, on both sides," Nebraska Head Coach Bo Pelini said.  "We have to clean up our football.  I think it'll serve as a wakeup call to our guys in some instances, but I think most importantly, I think we'll learn a lot from watching this film."

Nebraska and Southern Miss kick off Saturday at 5 p.m. on the Big Ten Network.  The Huskers beat the Golden Eagles by 29 last year.
