With its biggest game of the season on Saturday, No. 7 Nebraska is getting a pretty big piece of its offense back.
Receiver Jordan Westerkamp is expected to make his return to the field for the Huskers’ Big Ten West clash at No. 11 Wisconsin at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday.
The senior was listed as the starter on Nebraska’s depth chart released Monday. He missed the last two games after suffering a back injury against Illinois on Oct. 1.
