NU’s back suspended 1 game

August 23, 2001


Nebraska I-back Dahrran Diedrick will not play in Saturday's season opener as a one-game suspension after his weekend arrest, Cornhuskers coach Frank Solich said Wednesday. Fourth-ranked Nebraska opens the season at home against Texas Christian in the Pigskin Classic.

"My decision to suspend Dahrran for this game is not based on this situation alone, but rather a combination of the incident and how I addressed the team just prior to the incident occurring," Solich said.
