Nebraska coach Mike Riley has settled on a format for Saturday’s Red-White Spring Game. More than 70 thousand fans will be in Memorial Stadium to watch the Huskers close out spring drills.
“It is not going to be offense against defense”, said Riley. “We are going to form two teams that will be finalized and selected by the coaching staff.”
Tanner Lee and Patrick O’Brien have been competing to take over for Tommy Armstrong and offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf touched on how the quarterbacks will evaluated.
“It’s not a whole lot different than every other practice. It’s going to be a deal where there will be a bunch of people in the stands and that will be different,” Langsdorf said. “Making sure we have a lot of poise and don’t get too caught up in all the hype of the day. So that will be different for them but in terms of evaluation it will be heavily graded and looked at like all of our practices have been. It’s an important practice but it’s not anything way different in terms of the whole entire spring and how we’ve evaluated it.”
Kickoff is 1:00p.m. The game will be carried via tape delay on the Big Ten Network.
