The Wolverines defense has been terrific under coordinator Don Brown, who joined the staff following the 2015 season.

Former Nebraska secondary coach George Darlington says the Husker defense has improved, especially up front. "But if that one kid (safety Cam Taylor-Britt) is out, there could be problems. All in all, the defense is better, but it's still not where anybody wants it to be talentwise. There are warts at some positions. I'm not talking about effort or anything like that. They just need to be a little more talented in some places."
When Nebraska's initial depth chart came out before the season opener and had Bryce Benhart listed as the No. 2 right tackle, most figured it was probably just a matter of time before the touted recruit got onto the field.
