Lincoln, Neb. • No update on Nebraska coach Bo Pelini's health is expected until his regularly scheduled weekly news conference on Monday.

Pelini fell ill in the first half of Saturday's game against Arkansas State. He was taken by ambulance to a Lincoln hospital after halftime for precautionary tests.

Pelini, 44, was released from the hospital by Saturday evening. He said in a statement after the 42-13 win that "everything checked out just fine" and that he planned to work Sunday.

Nebraska athletic department spokesman Keith Mann said the school has no plans to comment on Pelini's status unless his condition changes.

Pelini's statement after the game didn't mention his symptoms. A team doctor checked Pelini's pulse on the sideline during the second quarter.
