OR defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt wants big plays limited against Nebraska

OR defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt wants big plays limited against Nebraska”

OR hosts Nebraska on Saturday at Autzen Stadium in a matchup of two 1-0 teams looking for a quality win before conference play kicks off. It's actually pretty neat. Those things are big for me.

One of those quality opponents comes to town on Saturday when the Ducks host Nebraska.

"I do like revisiting that history because I appreciated it so much".

"I think it's going to be a high scoring game".

Riley's only victory at Autzen came in 2007, a 38-31 overtime victory for Oregon State in the Civil War.

In 2016, in post-game news conferences, the head coach would lament the penalties and say, "we've got to clean that up" and next week, same thing - the coaching staff was unable to "clean up" the penalties with the work that was done by coaches and players in practice. Do not be fooled by total yardage stats, they are not reliable, especially for a fast-tempo offense that forces its defense to play more snaps than the average team. "We've done a lot of silent cadence stuff because we have to be really well-prepared because that can mess up a game". He coached college football for 18 years, including stints as an assistant coach at Oregon, Washington, Washington State and Utah State, and was head coach at Whitman College and Washington University-St.

"They have a couple guys, Royce Freeman and Charles Nelson, they have to be 10-year players in that program from what I remember", Nebraska coach Mike Riley joked. "I can't believe it". Last season when Nebraska beat OR, 35-32 in Lincoln, Nelson caught eight passes for 80 yards.

After a dramatic season opener against Arkansas State, Nebraska will hit the road to take on OR in Eugene.

Nebraska's new 3-4 defense looked exhausted and confused at times during the first half, but rallied in the second half to make enough plays to secure the victory. "There is no guarantee, but it's a better transition than playing against the 4-3 all the time and then going a week getting ready for a 3-4".

"They went out and did what we asked them to do", OR coach Willie Taggart said.

"That's all coach Taggart".

Diaco's debut with the Cornhuskers caused some concerns.

You can call it first game jitters, overconfidence, or a letdown, but however you look at it, Nebraska was not very impressive in their narrow week one win at home over Arkansas State. "We have to tackle a little better". They want to run the ball like they did last week when Royce Freeman went for 150 yards and four touchdowns, Kani Benoit 107 yards and three TDs and Tony Brooks-James had 33 yards and also a 100-yard kickoff return. In previous years, less quarterback and more running back. "They do play some four-down looks and change it up nicely". They were hitting on all cylinders the other night.
