LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — The Nebraska defense has risen to the challenge to be more physical so far in fall camp.

Head coach Scott Frost has even expressed concern about the team possibly being too physical this early in fall camp. The Blackshirts take that as a compliment.

"It's the want-to by everyone," said senior linebacker Mohamed Barry. "We want to be the best. And when you want to be the best, you don't want to practice slow. You want to practice fast. But Coach Frost loves that. He's happy that this year. He's telling us 'whoa calm down' not 'come on guys let's go'. Even as a defense you want some dogs over there. I think that's what we bring everyday."

"Everbody's buying in," said sophomore defensive back Cam Taylor. "Everybody's not that 'I have to get to the league' person. It's 'we have to get to the league' person. Everybody has that dream of going to the NFL. But that's not what it's about right now. It's about Nebraska football and while you're here, you need to give it your all."

The Huskers return to practice Wednesday.
