Heller says they’ve gone to Nebraska a couple of times but they were hesitant to come to Waterloo, but was willing to come to Des Moines.Heller expects both teams to have a good turnout of fans, as he says they have a lot of alumni.The Panthers have dropped eight of their last eleven but Heller still feels his team can turn things around. He says it’s been a rough stretch against some good competition, but he says they’ve fought through it and are playing hard. UNI is 14-20 on the year. Nebraska is 31-7.
