Score on final play gives White squad the win

Wyatt Liewer’s 25-yard touchdown reception on the last play from scrimmage lifted the White team to a 21-20 win over the Red squad in the annual Nebraska football spring intrasquad game.

Trailing 20-14 with 1:06 remaining, the White squad drove 80 yards in eight plays for the winning score. Facing a 4th-and-11 from the Whites’ 35, freshman Heinrich Haarberg found Leiwer for a 40-yard completion to give the White team one final play even though the clock had hit 0:00. Haarberg then found Liewer for the touchdown, and Tyler Crawford’s extra point gave the White team a one-point victory.

The Red squad, which consisted of most of the starters, jumped out to a 13-0 halftime lead, getting a 4-yard scoring run from Marvin Scott and a pair of Connor Culp field goals, from 30 and 23 yards.

With most of the starters not playing after halftime, the Whites took the lead with 14 third-quarter points, getting touchdown runs from Jaquez Yant (21 yards) and Isaiah Harris (29 yards). The Red squad retook the lead at 20-14 with 6:06 left in the game as Logan Smothers found Brody Belt for a 23-yard touchdown.

Martinez and Manning had opportunities to light up this scrimmage, and they simply didn’t do it.


On a sun-splashed May Day when Husker fans returned to their favorite place, there was room for both healthy skeptics and cautious optimists.

Omaha World-Herald

Yes, this felt healthy, pretty much all of it. For all of us.

Lincoln Journal Star

The story was seeing a city and a state take a step closer to getting back to normalcy.


We can probably agree that Nebraska was being honest in its assessment that Martinez is a step faster this spring.
