With FCS-level Idaho State the only opponent left before the Big Ten opener, Nebraska sees no need to rush Rex Burkhead back from injury.
Ameer Abdullah and his fellow running backs have proved to be more than capable fill-ins.
The No. 25 Cornhuskers ran the ball on 59 of their 73 plays from scrimmage and finished with 347 of their 527 yards on the ground in their 42-13 win over Arkansas State.
Abdullah carried 30 times for 167 yards and two touchdowns.
Burkhead hasn't played since he sprained a ligament two weeks ago against Southern Mississippi.
The Huskers (2-1) have seen no drop-off in production in Burkhead's absence. They've run for at least 250 yards in three straight games for the first time since the opening three games in 2010.
