Shortly after watching Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon run through his charges in record-setting fashion, Nebraska defensive coordinator John Papuchis issued the challenge for this week.
"A lot of who we are as a program, coaches and players, is going to be revealed when we play against Minnesota," Papuchis said in Madison, Wisconsin.
It's going to be a rough few days for those players and coaches before kickoff against the Gophers.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) â€” Nebraska tried its best to emulate Melvin Gordon's speed in practice.
But no Cornhusker can run quite like the man himself, and Nebraska found that out the hard way on Saturday.
Gordon rushed for a major college-record 408 yards and four touchdowns, and No. 22 Wisconsin scored 56 unanswered points in a 59-24 rout of the 11th-ranked Cornhuskers.
"Just the speed of Melvin Gordon is impossible to simulate. That would be anybody on our team," defensive coordinator John Papuchis said.
