BROWN 111 4BKUNKLE 878urganar 88P1PERSBURQ Today's matchups CROUCH NEBRASKA VS.TIN5NGR00R1 It appears fliis matchup may be relevant for some time, the list of injuries seems to never end At least four top-unit players I-back DeAngelo Evans, free safety Clint Fmley. wingback Lance Brown and defensive tackle Jason Wiltz have been ' ruled out. Backup rush , end Kyle Vanden Bosch may not play. In addition, sophomore quarterback Bobby Newcombe likely 1 won't play, and No. 2 QB Eric Crouch (hamstring) is also limping. That means fifth-year senior Monte Christo could see -significant playing time or maybe even make his first career start. Two other key Components of the Husker defense rush end Mike Rucker and cornerback Erwin Swiney continue to be J ' slowed by groin injuries. They'll both play 1 the question is how much. The Huskers need to avoid being upset today and then heal for i the Sept. 26 meeting against Washington.- ' ' 7 CAL Q3 VTCDLR ; VS. KU PASS CCVEKACE Justin Vedder had a 267-yard passing , performance last week. His favorite receiver is Dameane Douglas. However, Cal gave up five sacks and 1 1 tackles behind the Hne. Nebraska has six sacks in its first two games and is expecting more this time around. The pass coverage that was struck for 590 yards the first week allowed just 53 yards of passing last week. "We should be ready for just about anything after seeing those two offenses," said NU cornerback Ralph Drown, referring to Louisiana Tech and Alabama-Birmingham. "We'll get a ctear, hormst reading of our pass defense this week," added Coach Frank Solich. - I . On the road for the first time thi3 season, Nebraska will travel to California for the first time since posting a 1 4-1 3 victory over UCLA in Rose Bow) Stadium in 1993. Nebraska has -: a 1-0 record against Cal, beating the Bears . . 36-26 in Lincoln in 1 978. This time, the Huskers may encounter a crowd almost as friendly as in Lincoln, since more than 30,000 Husker fans are expected to be at the game. Still, Nebraska's offense practiced with ' loudspeakers this week just in case, Nebraska is historically a good road team, posting a 39-6-1 record away from home since 1988. Since 1 993, NU is 24-2 on the road, losing at Arizona State in 1 996 and to Texas in St Louis the same year. ", "' ""Tf"CALDEFENSEiSt::v;:J i VS. NU OFFENSE , Nebraska has not produced anywhere near the 392.6 yards rushing and 51 3.7 yards ; of total offense per game that It forged in last year's national championship run. However, the Huskers are passing at a better rate than ' any time since 1988, and the relatively young offensive line Is Improving each week. Cal's defense is the key to its season. It gave up too many big plays last season but came through against Houston last week, allowing one 86-yard drive to open the game but just 135 yards of offense the rest of the way. Nebraska coaches praise Cal's overall speed on , defense, t . kixsasxa specsal tea:.:s vs. special tea.v.s Cal Coach Tom Holmoe was furious about the Bears' special-teams play last week against Houston. Cal had a punt blocked, allowed a 37-yard kickoff return and missed a 45-yard field goal. Punter Nick Harris punted 1 1 times for an average of only 34.3 yards. "We were horrible," Holmoe said. Nebraska, meanwhile, thrives in this area. The Huskers are ranked 10th nationally in kickoff returns, 21st in punt returns and 14th in not punting. Place-kicker Kris Brown has made 1 7 straight field goals. Shevin Wiggins is 13th nationally in punt returns (1 7.0-yard average), and Joe Walker is eighth in kickoff returns (36.4).
