Nebraska Star DE Randy Gregory, WR Kenny Bell Might Not Play In Season Finale vs. Iowa

Nebraska might be without two of its best players when it ends its regular season against Iowa on Friday. 

The Huskers, who have lost back-to-back games against Wisconsin and Minnesota, respectively, are pretty banged up. Bo Pelini's star defensive end, Randy Gregory, and his senior wide receiver, Kenny Bell, are both questionable for Friday's tilt against the Hawkeyes. Both players suffered minor injuries against the Golden Gophers last week. 

Pelini said today both players have "50-50" chances of playing.

Nebraska had a promising start to the 2014 season, winning eight of its first nine games, but the bottom has fallen out for the Huskers over the last two weeks. Some are beginning to call for Pelini's job and a loss to the Hawkeyes would likely put the 46-year-old coach firmly on the hot seat. Playing without Gregory and Bell would surely make it more difficult for Nebraska to notch a victory. 

The Huskers and the Hawkeyes are set to kick off at 12 p.m. E.T. Saturday. The game will be televised on ABC.
