Nebraska's Bo Pelini says he's "not coaching to save my job" when his Cornhuskers host Iowa in Friday's regular-season finale in Lincoln.

Despite having never won fewer than nine games in his previous five seasons, Pelini has come under fire as Nebraska's streak of not winning a conference championship stretches to 14 years.

Despite injury problems and youth on defense, the Huskers are in line for another nine-win season if they beat Iowa or win their bowl game.

Pelini said Monday he likes the direction of the program. Athletic director Shawn Eichorst has said his policy is to not comment on a coach's performance during the season.

Pelini said he can look himself in the mirror and feel good about what he's done for the program.
