The Nebraska Cornhuskers have another tough task as they face the 5-3 Minnesota Gophers this upcoming Saturday. The Huskers’ defensive coordinator Bill Busch knows his squad will have a challenge in stopping running back Mo Ibrahim.

Busch gave the running back high praise and a huge compliment during his press conference Wednesday. According to Busch, Ibrahim is “one of the most elite backs probably that I’ve ever had to coach against.”

Ibrahim has rushed for 955 yards and 13 touchdowns so far this season and head coach Mickey Joseph agrees with his defensive coordinator’s assessment of Ibrahim and calls Ibrahim a “monster.”

“He’s a tough kid,” Joseph said. “We’ve got to gang-tackle him. One-on-one tackles — he’s probably going to run through that. He’s got big tree trunks. You see how he’s built? He’s a good-looking dude.”

The Cornhuskers know they have a tough task ahead of them this coming weekend. The last time the Cornhuskers faced Ibrahim, he rushed for over 100 yards during the 2020 season.
