- All three quarterbacks in the derby for the starting job at Illinois took reps with the first team as part of offensive coordinator Bill Cubit's effort to make the playing field as level as possible.
- Nebraska athletic director Shawn Eichorst declined to comment on a possible contract extension for Bo Pelini.
