Nebraska's Pelini keeps Buckeye pride under wraps

Updated:

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - To Bo Pelini, Nebraska's visit to Ohio Stadium this week is strictly business.

The Cornhuskers coach won't spend time harkening to his days as a safety for Ohio State from 1986-90.

Pelini said all he is concerned with is getting the No. 21 Huskers (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten) to play their best in Saturday night's game against the No. 12 Buckeyes (5-0, 1-0).

Ohio State was 25-18-3 during Pelini's four years and never finished higher than a tie for third in the Big Ten.

Linebacker Will Compton said he thinks Pelini purposely downplays talk about his Ohio State roots because it would be a distraction. The Huskers won last year's game 34-27, rallying from a 21-point deficit in the third quarter for the greatest comeback in school history.
