UPDATE: Pelini said in a statement from the hospital after the game that he was doing fine.
“They ran some precautionary tests on me and everything checked out fine” Pelini said. “I plan to be back at work tomorrow. I’m proud of the way our coaching staff and team responded.”
An ambulance took the 44-year-old Pelini to a hospital after he complained of not feeling well in the first half. A member of the Nebraska athletic medicine staff was seen checking his pulse, but he continued to coach through the end of the second quarter.
