Rivals recruiting analyst Nick Krueger passes along that administrative uncertainty at Nebraska could scare off four-star 2018 verbal WR commit Josh Moore.

Moore (6'1/156) was intrigued by the possibility of running track with the Huskers in addition to football, but Krueger writes that "with the hiring of a new athletic director and speculation that a coaching change could follow, [the track aspect] might not be enough to keep him in the fold." As for who might be able to pry Moore loose from Nebraska, the Yoakum, Texas, native will be taking an official visit to Alabama this weekend and his brother Jordan Moore (a four-star athlete in his own right) is currently committed to Texas A&M. Both the Tide and Aggies are programs to watch, here. Moore ranks as Rivals' No. 142 overall prospect in the 2018 class.

Nebraska redshirt junior DE Freedom Akinmoladun's draft stock has tanked this season, writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

"[Nebraska's] defense has been abysmal, and Akinmoladun defines the unit’s problem," Pauline wrote. Akinmoladun, whom Pauline reports entered the season with middle-round grades, has posted only one sack, one TFL and 18 tackles in eight games. "During the humiliating loss to Ohio State, he was rag-dolled throughout the contest and never made an impact," Pauline wrote.

Nebraska hired Washington State AD Bill Moos to serve in the same capacity.

Moos fills the position formerly held by Shawn Eichorst, who was fired on September 21. He had been with Washington State for seven years and previously served as Oregon's athletic director from 1995-2007. Per ESPN's Mitch Sherman, Moos' contract with the Cornhuskers is of the five-year variety and will net him $1 million annually.

Nebraska redshirt junior QB Tanner Lee completed 23-of-48 passes for 303 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 56-14 loss to Ohio State.

Lee went through a horrific three-game stretch back in September in which he tossed nine interceptions. The Tulane transfer has thrown just one pick in his last three games, though, and looks to have (maybe) begun to settle into a less turnover-prone existence with a month-plus of play under his belt.
Oct 14 - 11:53 PM

Nebraska redshirt freshman WR J.D. Spielman caught 11 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 56-14 loss to Ohio State.

The Cornhuskers were blown off the field, but that did not stop Spielman from putting in one of the weekend's best receiving performances in the FBS. His third-quarter touchdown came from 77 yards out and snapped what had been a shutout performance from OSU's defense. Not only was this Spielman's first 200-yard showing of the campaign (no surprise there), it was his first game this season with more than 80 yards receiving. He'll have a shot at making it back-to-back strong performances when Nebraska takes on Purdue after they rest up on bye.
Oct 14 - 11:34 PM

Nebraska redshirt junior WR Bryan Reimers (hamstring) is unlikely to play in Saturday's game against Ohio State.

Reimers (6'5/210) has posted just one catch for three yards this season. Count his expected absence against the Buckeyes as a minor depth blow.
Oct 12 - 7:50 PM

Nebraska redshirt junior RB Mikale Wilbon (ankle) is expected to be able to play in Saturday's game against Ohio State.

Wilbon sat against Wisconsin this past weekend, but has made ample progress during the practice week and should be able to suit up on Saturday barring a late setback. The 5-foot-9, 200-pounder has rushed for 251 yards (4.5 YPC) and three touchdowns in five games this season. He and Devine Ozigbo will take the majority of carries against the Buckeyes with Tre Bryant (knee) already ruled out for the contest.
Oct 12 - 7:27 PM

Nebraska sophomore RB Tre Bryant (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Ohio State.

While Bryant (5'11/200) did attempt to practice earlier in the week, he was unable to even make it through a full session. A medical redshirt is beginning to look more and more likely for the campaign, but no decision has been made on that front as of yet. Mikale Wilbon and Devine Ozigbo will see the bulk of work on the ground for the Huskers on Saturday.
Oct 12 - 7:01 PM

Nebraska sophomore RB Tre Bryant (knee) took part in the early portion of Tuesday's practice but took an early leave after two periods.

That Bryant was practicing at all is noteworthy -- Huskers HC Mike Riley is open to the possibility of the sophomore taking a medical redshirt for the campaign. There remains no timetable for the 5-foot-11, 200-pounder's return. We should receive clarity as to Bryant's availability for the remainder of the campaign in the coming days and weeks.
Oct 10 - 8:30 PM

Nebraska head coach Mike Riley said redshirt junior RB Mikale Wilbon (ankle) is improving.

"Mikale Wilbon has gotten better and we’ll see how he rolls this week and what kind of work he can do today," he said. Wilbon did not play in Saturday's loss to Wisconsin, though Riley mentioned that he could have if needed in an emergency. With sophomore RB Tre Bryant (knee) potentially out for the year, the Cornhuskers could really use Wilbon back. Consider him probable to return this weekend against Ohio State.

Oct 9 - 4:21 PM

Nebraska head coach Mike Riley is considering using a medical redshirt on sophomore RB Tre Bryant (knee).

That option is becoming more and more viable as the week's pass. Bryant was knocked out late in the Week 2 loss to Oregon. He hasn't played since. "That’s a real mystery there," Riley said. The coach was then asked a question about potentially redshirting Bryant. "We’re going to be very careful with every decision made about Tre Bryant," Riley said. "First of all, we want him to feel good and play healthy if he does indeed play again. The next part of redshirting would be a discussion with our staff and his family." Bryant was dynamite before going down, posting 299 yards (5.9 YPC) and two touchdowns.

Nebraska redshirt junior RB Mikale Wilbon (ankle) did not play in Saturday's loss to Wisconsin.

Wilbon warmed up before the game, but HC Mike Riley decided to hold him out. Said Riley, "Mikale possibly could’ve played in a real emergency-type mode situation, but we never got to that where I thought about playing him." The 5-foot-9, 200-pounder's status for next Saturday's game against Ohio State will be determined over the course of the practice week.

Nebraska junior WR Stanley Morgan caught four passes for 115 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's loss to Wisconsin.

Morgan (6'1/195) has been dealing with a neck injury over the past few weeks, but looked no worse for the wear against the Badgers. The junior wideout did the bulk of his damage on an 80-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter. For the campaign, he owns a 30-510-5 receiving line through five games played.
Oct 8 - 12:43 PM

Nebraska sophomore RB Devine Ozigbo ran for 112 yards on 23 carries in a 38-17 loss to Wisconsin on Saturday.

Ozibgo was the bellcow for the Cornhuskers, as Tre Bryant (knee) and Mikale Wilbon (knee) were unavailable for Nebraska. Even in a losing effort, the sophomore tailback had a solid day, and the only thing that was missing was a trip into the end zone. He'll look to rectify that next week -- assuming Wilbon is out -- when they host Ohio State.
Oct 7 - 11:30 PM

Nebraska redshirt junior RB Mikale Wilbon (ankle) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Wisconsin.

Wilbon (5'9/200) has been dealing with a minor ankle injury, but barring a late setback, he should be able to play come kickoff against the Badgers. He and Devine Ozigbo will split carries on Saturday with Tre Bryant (knee) still not ready to return.
