Red Rolls to Spring Game Win: More than 78,000 red-clad Husker fans watched Nebraska quarterbacks combine for 693 passing yards on 62 completions as the Red team rolled to a 55-7 victory over the White team in the Spring Game.

Leading the No. 1 offense for the Red team, quarterbacks Tanner Lee and Patrick O’Brien did not disappoint. Lee completed 13 of 19 passes for 190 yards and three touchdowns, while O’Brien completed 11 of 17 for 134 yards and a score.

Freshman quarterback Tristan Gebbia also moved the White offense effectively throughout the first half against the top defensive units.

There was a Devine Ozogbo sighting. Yes! That was good to see.


It’s not easy to live up to the hype, but through 15 spring practices ... Tanner Lee did exactly that.


There just might be something to this notion of ‘fit’ and Nebraska’s next quarterback.

Lee looked to have the most control in the pocket ... from start to finish. He also had the best touch.

The game film from Saturday will likely only strengthen [Cole] Conrad’s grip on the top center spot.


If Lee isn’t named the starter sometime soon, it will shock a lot of folks who follow the program closely.
