Nebraska could not have planned a bye week at a better time. Never has rest and a time to reevaluate been more important.

Going into the bye week, Dirk Chatelain of the Omaha World Herald quoted head coach Bo Pelini assuring the defensive woes are a thing of the past.

“We’ll find the right combination and we’ll find a way. I’ve always been able to do that. … I’ll get this fixed. Trust me there," Pelini said after beating South Dakota State.

Hopefully Pelini is right. As of now, the Blackshirts are giving up 10-plus yards for every 3.6 snaps. With that, Nebraska ranks No. 124 out of 125 FBS teams in plays that go for 10-plus yards. That has to be an alarming statistic for Pelini and staff.

However, Nebraska is still very much on track to win the Legends Division of the Big Ten. With other teams struggling, the Huskers' hopes of a return visit to Indianapolis are not yet dashed.

Pelini will still need to fix some major issues for the Huskers during the time off, though.

What are the top five things the Huskers must fix in the bye week?
