LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)—Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said he would try to contact Missouri coach Gary Pinkel to discuss Chase Daniel’s comments about the Cornhuskers being a dirty team.
The Tigers star quarterback said a Nebraska player spit on him before Saturday night’s game, which Missouri won 52-17. Daniel also told reporters after the game that Nebraska players threw footballs at the Tigers as they were warming up.
Pelini said he didn’t hear about Daniel’s comments until after he woke up Sunday morning.
“Usually, you’d know about something like that,” Pelini said. “But I’m going to investigate it and find out because that’s unacceptable if something like that happened. And I would hope that the opposing coaching staff would let me know if something like that happened.”
Pelini said he he watched video of the game and saw nothing out of line.
“I didn’t see dirty play out there,” he said.
