Defense on the mend this week for Va. Tech

While the Huskers had the weekend off, Saturday was their last planned day off during the bye week, this week’s opponent Virginia Tech rallied on the road to beat a much improved North Carolina team 20-17. 
On the injury front, the defense will get a boost as defensive end Pierre Allen, safety Ricky Thenarse, and cornerback Anthony West are all expected to suit up and have full participation this week in practice.
