Huskers' Amukamara ready for Mizzou receivers

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara says he doesn't have time to feel sorry for himself after getting worked over by Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon.

Blaine Gabbert and Missouri are coming to Lincoln Saturday for a game that will give the winner control of the Big 12 North.

Blackmon vs. Amukamara was the featured matchup of last week's game, which Nebraska won 51-41. Blackmon made five catches for 157 yards and two touchdowns - more than half of Brandon Weeden's 286 yards passing.

It was the most yards through the air against the Huskers since Kansas' Todd Reesing threw for 304 and three touchdowns in 2008.

Nebraska coach Bo Pelini says he's not worried about Amukamara's ability to bounce back and says the experience probably will make Amukamara better.
