Slowing Michigan's running game and controlling sack artist Aidan Hutchinson will be top priorities for the Huskers against the Wolverines.

Hutchinson has six tackles for loss, including 5½ sacks, through the Wolverines' first five games.

"He's explosive, strong and we have to be aware of where he is at all times," Nebraska offensive coordinator Matt Lubick said after Tuesday's practice.

On the other side of the ball, defensive coordinator Erik Chinander said slowing down Michigan's conference-leading run game will be essential. In addition to being big and physical on the line, Chinander said, the Wolverines "do a lot of multiple motions, multiple formations, and they're really good at the runs they have."

Lubick said freshman tight end Thomas Fidone returned to practice this week for the first time since his injury in the spring, but when he might see game hasn't been determined.
