Bo Pelini leaves Nebraska game in ambulance

By Tom Fornelli | Staff Writer

While his team is busy playing Arkansas State on the field, Nebraska coach Bo Pelini has left Memorial Stadium in an ambulance.

Nebraska issued a release confirming that Pelini had been taken to a nearby hospital.

Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne told the AP that Pelini was "doing fine" and that "it looks as though he's in pretty good shape." Osborne wouldn't go into detail on the symptoms Pelini was experiencing, saying only that the medical staff felt Pelini should be checked out at the hospital.

Pelini was seen on the sidelines having his pulse checked by doctors. He would remain in the locker room following halftime to be checked further. Shortly after that, ESPN reported he had left the stadium in an ambulance.

Defensive coordinator John Papuchis has taken over head-coaching duties in his absence.
