Nebraska football coach Mike Riley says the Huskers have a better idea which direction they want to go as they get set for spring drills. The Huskers finished 6-7 in Riley’s first season as head coach after a 37-29 victory over UCLA in the Foster Farms Bowl.
“Our recipe for winning that last game probably can’t be exactly like that for every game”, said Riley. “But as far as the format for how we approached it with running the football and the action passes we used can be a good vision for what you want to do going forward.”
Last season was a test of character for the Huskers. They opened the season 3-6 before winning three of their final four games. They open spring drills on Saturday and Riley says the focus will be on fundamentals.
“The focus for us is going to be just playing better football within the framework of what you do.”
The Red-White Spring Game is April 16th.
