UTEP beat Tulane University 44-7 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome last Saturday and the fans in New Orleans chanted “fire coach Toledo.”

Earlier this week,  Tulane head coach Bob Toledo met with athletic director Rick Dickson and the two mutually agreed that the football coach should resign.

Dickson has named Mark Hutson as the interim coach for Tulane’s remaining six games. Hutson also was the interim head coach at Eastern Illinois in 2006. Hutson has been the Green Wave’s offensive line coach for all five years with Toledo. He led Eastern Illinois to a co-Ohio Valley Conference championship and an 8-5 record in his season as interim head coach and he has also been an assistant at Tulsa and Arkansas.

Toledo, who is 65, a former head coach at UCLA, took over the Tulane Green Wave in 2007. Eventhough his record was 13-35 in his first four years, Toledo received a two-year extension after last season in the hope his recruiting efforts would pay off with a winning season in 2011, but the team is 2-5 and has been blown out by Tulsa, Duke, Army and UTEP.

The Buckeyes and Cornhuskers will be doing battle in Lincoln, Nebraska tonight.

The two programs are among only eight in the country with 800 or more wins. Nebraska is fourth with 841 and the Buckeyes have been victorious 834 times.

Nebraska is 4-1, 0-1 in the Big Ten and ranked #14 and 15 in the latest Associated Press and USA Today polls.

The Cornhuskers lost their first game of the season last Saturday night at #7 Wisconsin, 48-17.

The Huskers started the season with wins over Chattanooga (40-7), Fresno State (42-29), Washington (51-38) and at Wyoming (38-14).

As a team Nebraska leads the nation in kickoff returns at 30.5 yards a return and ranks ninth in rushing, racking up just under 250 yards per game.

Ameer Abdullah is the nation’s best return man at 35.1 yards per kick return and the 18th with 12.0 yards per punt return.

Running back Rex Burkhead and quarterback Taylor Martinez rank second and fourth in rushing in the Big Ten with 103.2 and 96.4 yards per game, respectively.

Bo Pelini, a graduate of Ohio State in 1990, is in his fourth season at Nebraska as the head coach with a 34-13 overall record. He has led the Cornhuskers to three straight bowl games: Gator (2008) and Holiday Bowls (2009, 2010).

Pelini was a four-year letterwinner as a defensive back for the Buckeyes under Earle Bruce and John Cooper from 1987 to 1990.

Pelini started in the OSU secondary his final two seasons, was a three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree and was a co-captain as a senior. Pelini received the “Bo Rein Award” as a senior, given to the teams’ most inspirational player. Pelini graduated with a degree in business administration in 1990.

Tonight’s game will mark the third time Pelini has coached against his alma mater. In 1991, the Youngstown, Ohio native was a graduate assistant for an Iowa team that beat OSU, 16-9, in Columbus. After taking the Nebraska head job in December of 2007, Pelini completed his role as defensive coordinator at LSU, helping to guide the Tigers to a 38-24 win over OSU in the BCS National Championship Game in New Orleans.

GAME NOTES:

* Nebraska and Ohio State are meeting for just the third time and the first time in Lincoln. The Buckeyes own a 2-0 edge with a pair of wins in Columbus. Sixth-ranked Ohio State beat Nebraska, 28-20, in 1955 and the #8 Buckeyes beat Nebraska, 34-7, in 1956. The Cornhuskers has played every other Big Ten school more recently than Ohio State.

* Saturday’s game will be the fifth game in Nebraska history involving two teams with 800 all-time wins. Nebraska’s previous games between 800-win teams were three against Texas (2007, 2009, and 2010) and a 2010 game against Oklahoma.

Nebraska has two upcoming games this season against 800-win teams, November 12 at Penn State and November 19 at Michigan. Nebraska reached 800 wins during the 2006 season and has 841 wins all-time.
