Pelini says Huskers have to disrupt Daniel's rhythm to have a chance

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska coach Bo Pelini says the Cornhuskers must disrupt Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel's rhythm if they are going to have a chance to win tomorrow night.

That's easier said than done. Daniel has been sacked once in 134 times he's looked to pass. He sits deep in the shotgun and releases the ball quickly.

Pelini says a defense can't let Daniel "sit back there and make a sandwich."

Nebraska's defense is giving up 355 yards a game, and Western Michigan, San Jose State and New Mexico State each had a pass play of longer than 50 yards.

Missouri has four receivers who have caught at least 16 passes through four games, led by tight end Chase Coffman (28 for 379 yards) and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (26-391).
