Big Red Now: Monday Morning Quarterback

By Chase Williams. CREATED Nov 12, 2012

Lincoln, NE - Nearly a month after straining his knee for the third time of the season, Rex Burkhead is hoping for a return to the field this weekend against Minnesota in the Huskers final home game of the year. It's also Senior Day for Burkhead.

The Plano, Texas native is currently sixth on Nebraska's All-Time Career Rushing yards list with 3,059. Burkhead believes his knee will heal over time, however he isn't sure he'll be ready to go against the Gophers on Saturday.
