Liddell with starters
Senior strong safety Josh Liddell, who has started 20 consecutive games but since the spring found himself working on the second team behind De’Andre Coley, was back with the first-team defense Saturday.
“Josh Liddell has probably had the 14 best practices of his career,” Bret Bielema said. “He has bought in. He’s always taken coaching. He plays within the extremes of what he can play.”
Bielema said defensive coordinator Paul Rhoads summed up Liddell the best by saying, “He’s always in the right spot. His eyes are always in the right spot and he seems to make all the plays.”
