Bell was not on the travel roster as Nebraska (0-4, 0-2 Big Ten) prepared to head to Madison, Wis., to meet the Badgers (3-1, 1-0) in a conference matchup on Saturday.

Ranked as the No. 1 junior college running back nationally at Arizona Western, Bell won the starting job in the summer. He had been overtaken by senior Devine Ozigbo.

Last week against Purdue, Bell carried the ball twice for two yards. Ozigbo had 170 yards on 17 carries with two touchdowns.

On Tuesday, sophomore wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey left Nebraska and intends to transfer. He can take advantage of the new NCAA rule that allows a player to appear in four games and still redshirt to maintain a year of eligibility.

On the season, Lindsey had three catches for 22 yards.
