No. 21 Nebraska opens Big Ten play against Illinois

September 26, 2014

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Ameer Abdullah has the third-most rushing attempts in the nation and has touched the ball on one-third of Nebraska's plays from scrimmage.

He wants to continue with the heavy workload.

"I feel better in week No. 4 than I have in previous seasons," Abdullah said.

That's good for the 21st-ranked Cornhuskers (4-0) and bad for Illinois (3-1), which visits Memorial Stadium on Saturday.
