Former UW commit Jordan Stevenson expected to play vs. Badgers Saturday


Looks like there's an added storyline layer to Saturday's match-up between Nebraska and Wisconsin in Lincoln.

True freshman running back and former Wisconsin commit Jordan Stevenson will burn his redshirt and contribute to the Huskers' special teams, Nebraska head coach Mike Riley told reporters on Thursday. Multiple media reported the news from Lincoln.

Stevenson, a four-star recruit, was slated to redshirt per Riley earlier in the season after arriving to camp late. The Texas native committed to Nebraska in the summer after being denied admission to Wisconsin.
