Nebraska Offensive Line Not Stressing Over Sacks

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska has given up 68 sacks the past two seasons. The Cornhusker linemen say it's a point that has been pounded into them.

Nebraska has allowed a sack on one of every 14 pass plays since 2005.

Only 11 other teams in Division I Football Bowl Subdivision have given up more over the same period.

Line Coach Dennis Wagner said his unit's ability to protect the quarterback is an obvious concern, but the issue isn't causing him excess worry.

He says a team like Nebraska that throws 400 times a season is going to give up a few.
