Recap

Frost leads Whites past Reds in spring game

Before a record crowd of 39,771, transfer quarterback Scott Frost threw three touchdown passes to lead the White team past the Red 40-34 in the annual Cornhusker spring game.

The Red squad was led by quarterbacks Tommie Frazier and Brook Berringer, and the Whites were led by walk-on QB Matt Turman and Wood River native Frost.

While Frazier improved his passing form and touch, Berringer seemingly answered him by showing new speed and option moves, including a 36-yard touchdown run.

Frost played two seasons at Stanford, starting several games at safety and two at quarterback. He transferred to Nebraska this spring and will be eligible to play in 1996 and 1997.

“I can’t tell you how great it is playing in front of fans where 40,000 people show up for spring scrimmage,” Frost said. “We didn’t have that many people at half our home games last year.”

The game followed Friday night’s national championship celebration, which drew 40,278 fans to Memorial Stadium and raised about $80,000 for the university’s library fund. Players received their championship rings during a program that included a laser light show, highlights of last season and a replay of the 13-0 Cornhuskers’ fourth-quarter comeback against Miami in the Orange Bowl.

NOTES: I-back Lawrence Phillips sat out the game with a hamstring injury. … Receivers Reggie Baul of the Reds and Riley Washington of the Whites set spring game records — Baul with 184 receiving yards and Washington with three touchdown receptions. … Tommie Frazier’s 80-yard completion to Baul for six points tied the record for longest touchdown pass.

Commentary

Shatel

There probably couldn’t be a better scenario for Frost’s initiation. Instead of being tossed head-first into the fire of expectations and Nebraska’s offense, he gets to sit and observe.

Omaha World-Herald
Babcock

Frazier's 5-yard punt return was insignificant when compared to other things he did Saturday. ... It was characteristic of his attitude, however, and not just this spring.
