OMAHA, Neb. — Nebraska must stew for two weeks in the wake of another abysmal road performance.

The Cornhuskers gave up the fourth-most points in program history and most ever under fifth-year coach Bo Pelini in Saturday's 63-38 loss at Ohio State.

This came a month after Nebraska surrendered the second-most yards in a loss at UCLA and a week after Pelini, in the glow of a come-from-behind win over Wisconsin, boasted "I haven't forgotten how to coach defense and how to stop the run."

The Huskers (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten), who dropped out of the Associated Press Top 25, will have to live with the fallout from this one until they play at Northwestern on Oct. 20. Receiver Kenny Bell says the next two weeks "are going to be brutal."
