The Illinois Fighting Illini (1-2) travel to Lincoln, Neb., to take on the No. 15 Cornhuskers at Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternn (30 p.m. ET on ESPN2) following a bye week. Despite a 4-0 start, the Cornhuskers could probably use a week off, t.Now nearly a full month into the season, injuries are starting to mount for Nebraska, particularly along its offensive line.After losing a projected starter in Jerald Foster to a season-ending knee injury during fall camp, the Huskers were already thin on an offensive front that featured three new starters and two others taking over new positions.Now it lks like Nebraska (4-0 overall, 1-0 Big Ten) might be down another starter this week against Illinois (1-2, 0-0), as sophomore right guard Tanner Farmer is considered doubtful and mostly likely out after suffering a high ankle sprain in Saturdays 24-13 win over Northwestern.Tanner is probably out, head coach Mike Riley said. Its a high ankle sprain. He might need right through the bye to be healthy for the following week. So well see about that.Nebraska was already using a former tackle in senior walk-on Sam Hahn to replace Foster at left guard, and while senior Corey Whitaker would take over for Farmer if he is indeed ruled out, the depth after that suddenly becomes a major concern.Riley said right now the top backups at guard would be true freshman Boe Wilson and redshirt freshman Jalin Barnett, neither of which have played a single meaningful snap in their college careers.In fact, while Wilson was briefly in the discussion for immediate playing time before the season, Riley had since stated he wanted to redshirt the former three-star prospect in 2016. Barnett, a former four-star recruit, has been plagued by minor injuries in his own right.Its just kind of the next man up kind of thing, Hahn said. If somebody goes down, its next person up to step up and make plays. We just have to get prepared in practice every day and take it from there.The gd news is that the Huskers feel gd about Whitaker -- who earned one of the highest grades of any Husker offensive lineman after filling in for Farmer at Northwestern -- stepping into the starting lineup.But the lack of depth after the first group could present some problems this week against an Illinois defensive line that Riley called the best Nebraska will have seen all season.Weve lost two scout team players as a matter of fact, so our offensive line depth right now is not great, Riley said. Weve got to get this lineup set for this week and figure out how to practice for our defense, t, as we go through the week.Riley wont get much sympathy from his former NFL head coaching colleague Lovie Smith at Illinois. The Fighting Illini come in off a 25-point loss to North Carolina and a 24-point loss to Western Michigan, and Smith decided to have the team go through a full contact practice on Tuesday to get ready for the Huskers.You try to hit on all phases of your game; special teams, of course the offense, defense, Smith said when asked what he hoped to accomplish during the bye week. Weve given up some big plays; we havent made enough big plays on the other side of the ball. (Were) just really tightening the bolts on who we want to be. Not just in one area, it was all of us lking in the mirror. I think its pretty obvious on what we need to do better; thats what we concentrated on.No doubt one major emphasis for the Illini is trying to come up with a game plan to defend Nebraskas dual-threat quarterback Tommy Armstrong.Armstrong accounted for 378 yards of total offense in Nebraskas victory at Northwestern, including setting a career-high with 132 rushing yards on just 13 carries en route to Big Ten Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors. Armstrong has now rushed for 227 yards over the past two games, and his running ability and Nebraskas willingness to use it has completely changed the identity of the Husker offense.Nebraska is averaging 242.0 rushing yards per game to rank third in the Big Ten and 21st nationally. The Cornhuskers had a season-high 310 rushing yards at Northwestern and have rushed for at least 200 yards in three of four games.But Nebraska is also among the nations most balanced offensive attacks. The Huskers are also averaging 243.0 passing yards per game and 485.0 total yards per game, which ranks 23rd in the nation. Air Max 270 Femme Moins Cher .

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Lions have not announced the hiring, which was first reported by ESPN.

TUSCALSA, Ala. -- Unlike last seasons 32-point victory for Dayton, this one went down to the wire.Ryan Mikesell made his second 3-pointer of the game with 76 seconds left and Dayton beat Alabama 77-72 on Tuesday.That was a big shot, a really big shot for him, Dayton coach Archie Miller said. Hes a tough-minded kid, hes got guts and I knew when he shot it he would have a chance to make it just because of who he is as a competitor.Alabama coach Avery Johnson called his last timeout to set up a tying 3-point play with 19.5 seconds remaining, but Corban Collins open attempt from the corner was off the mark.Coach Johnson did a really gd job of drawing up a play to get us open, Collins said. I just had to take my time and I rushed it a little bit. But like coach said, its something we can lk at in film and fix, and next time we see that situation we know how to handle it better.Scchie Smith made three of Daytons nine 3-pointers and scored 20 points. Charles Cke had 19 points and 10 rebounds for Dayton (2-0), which connected on 24 of 44 shots from the flr while Alabama made only 23 of 59 (39 percent). Mikesell and Josh Cunningham each scored 12 points.Really, really hard fought game, especially early in the season to come out on the road and find a way to get a win was big for our group, Miller said.Collins and Braxton Key scored 15 points apiece for the Crimson Tide (1-1), which outrebounded the Flyers 40-28, includding 18-5 on the offense end.ddddddddddddDazon Ingram had 14 points and seven assists.Where we wouldve lost the game, obviously would have been on the glass, Miller said. Obviously we could not rebound the ball like a college basketball team today so thats something were going to take into account.BIG PICTUREDayton: The Flyers found themselves one spot outside the Top 25 this week, but with a win over the Crimson Tide, Dayton could be poised to move up next week.Alabama: The Crimson Tide lost to Dayton for the second consecutive year and must now wait for another chance to prove itself on a national stage.INJURY REPORTDaytons Josh Cunningham was fouled on a one-handed dunk to give his team a four-point lead in the final three seconds. He suffered an injury which knocked him out of the game and Miller said afterward that Cunningham could miss time due to knee and ankle injuries.FRESHMAN STANDOUTKey scored 10 of his 15 points in the second half for Alabama and he had a team-high six rebounds.NEXT UPDayton: The Flyers will return home, where they are 15-3 since the start of last season, and will face Saint Marys on Saturday.Alabama: After having its 16-game home winning streak against non-conference competition snapped, Alabama will attempt to start a new streak on Friday when it hosts Ball State.
