While Nebraska conducts a national coaching search, Mickey Joseph continues to run the Cornhuskers on an interim basis. 

Joseph lost his first game as interim head coach to Oklahoma on September 17, and he guided the team through a bye week last weekend.

Heading into this week's Big Ten game against Indiana, Joseph said he's not thinking too much about the ongoing search and is focusing on the task at hand.

Joseph added that he didn't realize his brother Vance, the defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals, lost until he spoke to him on Monday. 

Joseph, a former quarterback for the Cornhuskers, will look to earn his first victory as interim head coach when Nebraska hosts Indiana on Saturday night.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on BTN. The Huskers are 1-3 on the season, while Indiana is off to a 3-1 start.
