UPDATE AT 2:47: Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne says coach Bo Pelini is "doing fine" after leaving Saturday's game against Arkansas State by ambulance after halftime.
Pelini fell ill during the first half, and a member of the Nebraska medical staff was seen checking Pelini's pulse. He stayed on the sideline the rest of the half and was taken to a hospital after doctors treated him in the locker room.
Osborne said after the Huskers' 42-13 win that initial reports from the hospital indicated Pelini was "doing fine" and that "it looks as though he's in pretty good shape."
Osborne declined to comment on the nature of Pelini's symptoms. Osborne said it was serious enough that the medical staff thought Pelini needed to be checked out at the hospital.
