Brandenburgh to fill in for the injured Bo Ruud

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ The Nebraska football team practiced for two hours on Tuesday, continuing preparations for its Alamo Bowl match up with Michigan.

Lance Brandenburgh will start in place of the injured linebacker Bo Ruud, defensive coordinator Kevin Cosgrove said. Jeff Souder will back up Brandenburgh.

Brandenburgh challenged for the starting job in the fall and is more than capable of filling in for Ruud, Cosgrove said.

``We have been very fortunate that no matter what the situation was this year, our guys stepped up, and I fully expect Lance to do the same thing,'' Cosgrove said. ``Lance would have been in the mix from day one had he not been injured. He is a good football player.''

The Cornhuskers will practice again on Wednesday.
