Jake Wesch sees expanded role for NU

The Huskers have their second road game of the year at Iowa State.  The Cyclones by far the worse team in the Big 12 north, maybe even in the entire Big 12 after Baylor whipped them up 38-10.  The Clones 2-4 overall, but winless in the Big 12 although they gave KU a fight losing 35-33.
The key in this week’s game against Iowa State is finishing the job, not leaving plays out on the field as head coach Bo Pelini mentioned after the game on Saturday.  Jake Wesch who helped pull off the fake field goal attempt and hit tight end Mike McNeill for an eight yard completion with the team trailing 24-10 said that Pelini kept his message upbeat and positive after the game.
Wesch is one of those players too that you don’t really want to hear a lot from.  Chances are you hear about him and it can’t be good, because as the holder for field goal and PATs, it’s normally a botched snap that gets you noticed.  However, the walk-on from North Bend has been more than reliable in his role and was ready for anything they were going to throw his way.
His one punt in the game was a touchback after a 55 yard boomer.  Wesch has two punts this year and he’s average 47.5 yards.
