Nebraska is glad that coach Bo Pelini is back following a health scare last week.
The Cornhuskers are also getting senior running back Rex Burkhead back from injury, and he should provide a nice boost for an already potent ground attack.
The 25th-ranked Huskers go for a 12th consecutive non-conference home win when they face FCS opponent Idaho State for the first time Saturday.
After being taken to a hospital at halftime of a 42-13 home win over Arkansas State last Saturday, Pelini said Monday that he is feeling fine. Team doctors were concerned that his heartburn and dizziness could have been a sign of a more serious issue.
"One thing I don't want is anybody to make this out to be like I'm over-stressed,'' Pelini said. "It was an isolated incident and there were a number of factors that probably contributed to it. I am healthy and there are no issues there whatsoever. Otherwise, to be honest with you, I wouldn't be sitting here today.''
