Grant leads Whites to upset of Reds
Third-string quarterback Mike Grant rushed for 157 yards on 19 carries to lead the White squad to a 40-28 win over the Reds in the Nebraska football spring game.
Coach Tom Osborne was ambivalent in his assessment of the team after Saturday’s game, which concluded the Huskers’ spring practices. “We could be very good,” he said, “and we could be fairly average.”
Osborne said he was disappointed in the number of interceptions thrown Saturday. “We had six in the first half, and that was too many. We had several times when they threw it up for grabs. They hadn’t done that all spring.”
He said Gerry Gdowski will enter the fall as the No. 1 QB. Gdowski and Mickey Joseph have battled all spring for the spot vacated by Steve Taylor.
Kicker Tom Janky and I-back Troy Uhlir suffered knee injuries that are likely to force them to miss the fall season.
