Bill Busch addresses suspension of Myles Farmer for Nebraska's Week 11 game vs. Michigan
Bill Busch will be without one of his players against Michigan. The Nebraska defensive coordinator commented on the suspension of Myles Farmer.
The sophomore defensive back will be out against the Wolverines after a DUI arrest last weekend. According to Evan Bland with the Omaha World-Herald, Farmer was pulled over around 12:30 a.m. for failure to use a turn signal. Farmer reportedly had a blood alcohol content of .123% at the time of his arrest.

Farmer has made 31 tackles while recording 1 interception on the season. He was coming off a strong showing against Minnesota with 14 tackles. Farmer has been more active lately with 30 total stops over the last three games.
His absence comes at a tough time for Nebraska. The Huskers have lost their last three contests against Purdue, Illinois and Minnesota.
Things don’t get much easier with undefeated Michigan on Saturday. The Wolverines are 9-0 and sit atop the B1G East. The Huskers need to win out to become bowl eligible at 6-6.
