Banks had just burned the Sooners for 351 total yards – 195 on kickoff returns alone – returning a kickoff for a touchdown. It was his fourth of the season, which leads the nation. Banks is apparently hard to avoid, as well, as he averages 3.27 returns per game – first among any kick returner in the nation's top 20.
NU head coach Bo Pelini knows Banks' skills firsthand. He returned a kickoff for a touchdown vs. Nebraska last year in a 56-28 loss – at the time, it was the first in his career.
The best defense, Pelini joked, is a “60-mile-an-hour wind” at the back of kickoff specialist Adi Kunalic, who's currently fourth in the nation in touchbacks. Short of that, Pelini said, the Huskers will have a plan for dealing with Banks “based on the weather conditions.”
