LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska coach Bo Pelini has announced that defensive tackle Chase Rome has returned to the team and will be available to play Saturday against Idaho State.

Rome left the team last week after starting the first two games. Pelini said Thursday that Rome has been practicing all week.

The sophomore from Columbia, Mo., didn't play much in the second half of the Cornhuskers' 36-30 loss at UCLA. Pelini said last week that Rome's "personal goals and personal perception of where he should be on this football team doesn't match the team goals."

Rome had four tackles in the first two games.
