The Nebraska Danger getting defensive these last few weeks, only giving up an average of 31.66 points on average after surrendering a whopping 65 in their home opener against Wichita Falls.

"Our defense challenges ourselves just like our offense to be the best in the league," said head coach Hurtis Chinn.

Nebraska showing considerable improvement compared to last season when the team allowed opponents to score 49 points per contest.

"If we look at a game with us a 39–36 game then you look at a team like Iowa and Green Bay that their game was in the 20's. Our defense is like, 'Well why can't we have anybody in the 20's?'," Chinn Said.

It's not like the Danger defense is upset with their progress, but the unit is still not quite satisfied.

"If we're supposed to be among the top tier defenses in the league so week to week we found ways to challenge ourselves within the scheme of what we're doing," says the first-year head coach of the Danger.

Another tough challenge awaits the "Mean Green" as they travel to Des Moines to face the 4–2 Iowa Barnstormers on Saturday. Kick–off set for 7:05 pm.
