Brown worries about Nebraska's special teams
By ESPN.com staff
ARLINGTON, Texas -- One of Texas coach Mack Brown's biggest concerns is a Nebraska's special teams unit keyed by kicker/punter Alex Henery.
"The punter is unbelievable," Brown said. "He's like a magician the way he kicks the ball inside the 10-yard line. The field position is horrible for most teams they play."
Not only do the Huskers have strong kickers, but Brown is impressed with the collection of athletes that dot their special teams.
"This is probably the fastest Nebraska team we've seen," Brown said. "Their corners and linebackers are faster. Their receives are fast, so therefore, their special teams are faster. We feel like this is one of best matchups in the game. Both teams have been very good at times."
