LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — If South Alabama hoped to be overlooked by Nebraska, that won't happen. Not after the Cornhuskers lost at home to BYU on a Hail Mary last week.

Jaguars coach Joey Jones says he expects to see Nebraska locked in and ready when the teams meet Saturday night in Lincoln.

The Huskers (0-1) will try again to give Mike Riley his first win as their coach.

South Alabama (1-0) defeated FCS Gardner-Webb last week. The Jaguars are loaded with transfers, including seven from UAB's shuttered program. Five of them are starters on offense.

The Sun Belt Conference's Jaguars are 0-6 against opponents from Power Five conferences. They'll receive a guarantee of $980,000 from Nebraska.
