Nebraska’s David Rivers missed practice Sunday because of a sprained ankle suffered in Saturday’s 60-38 loss at Oregon.

Husker coach Tim Miles said Sunday night that Rivers is questionable for Tuesday’s 8 p.m. home game against Jacksonville State.

The Gamecocks from Jacksonville, Ala., improved their record to 8-2 on Saturday with an overtime win at Presbyterian. Like Nebraska, Jacksonville State also has a 22-point loss at Oregon this season.
