LINCOLN, Neb. (KTIV) -
For Nebraska, a week was all the defense needed to get on track.
The Blackshirts dominated Southern Miss, hauling in four interception returning two for scores in Nebraska's 56-13 victory over the Golden Eagles.
The last time Nebraska had two pick 6's was in 2010 against Idaho.
It's a shot of confidence for the squad as they prepare for UCLA.
"We played much better. The four takeaways, we got a good pass rush, even though it didn't translate in terms of sacks," Defensive Coordinator John Papuchis said. "So, I thought there was some significant improvement."
The Huskers and Bruins kick off at 11 a.m. Saturday.
