LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Nebraska coach Bo Pelini, who left Memorial Stadium by ambulance in the middle of Saturday’s game, has been released from a Lincoln hospital after undergoing tests. Pelini said in a statement immediately after the Cornhuskers’ 42-13 win that “everything checked out just fine.” He said he planned to work Sunday. Nebraska spokesman Keith Mann said Pelini was out of the hospital Saturday night.
Pelini began feeling ill during the first half, and a member of the Nebraska medical staff checked Pelini’s pulse on the sideline. Doctors treated him in the locker room at halftime. There was no word on the nature of Pelini’s symptoms. Athletic director Tom Osborne said doctors considered the situation serious enough that Pelini needed to be checked out at the hospital.
