Pelini: Nebraska moving in right direction

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska coach Bo Pelini says he has nothing to apologize for and that his program has not hit a ceiling in his seventh year on the job.

Pelini defended his program Monday in the wake of Saturday’s 59-24 loss at Wisconsin. The Badgers’ Melvin Gordon set an FBS single-game record with 408 yards rushing.

Pelini says the Cornhuskers have been consistent and that a lot of other programs “would have died to have won the amount of football games we’ve won.”

Pelini is 66-26 at Nebraska but hasn’t lost fewer than four games in a season. Pelini said he came to Nebraska to win championships and that he still thinks he can get it done. The Huskers dropped from No. 11 to No. 21 after Saturday’s loss.
