LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- John Papuchis says he feels no pressure as the youngest defensive coordinator in the Big Ten.

Instead, the 33-year-old sees opportunity in the job of repairing a unit that underperformed in Nebraska's first season in the conference.

No one will ever convince him he didn't pay his dues after working a combined six years at two schools as a graduate assistant and a seventh as an intern before coming to Nebraska with coach Bo Pelini in 2008.

The Huskers last year slipped to 37th in the nation in yards
allowed and 42nd in scoring defense.
