Defense prevails in spring finale

Darius Moore’s interception in the final minute put the White squad over the top in a 43-39 win over the Reds in the Nebraska football spring game.

The Reds had overcome a 19-point halftime deficit and appeared poised for a victory before Moore’s pick gave the Whites six points under the special scoring format for the game, which pitted the defense (Whites) against the offense (Reds).

Before the interception, the Red team had taken a 39-35 lead on a 42-yard touchdown pass from Jarrett Synek to Ty Hahn with 3½ minutes remaining.

The intrasquad scrimmage in front of 50,000-plus fans was the 15th and final spring practice for the 2022 Huskers, who begin their season Aug. 27 against Northwestern in Dublin, Ireland.

Commentary

Stryker

It was the type of day where you found out more about your new transfer punter than your quarterback room.

HuskerMax/All Huskers
Henry

What we can take away from Saturday is that the fans haven’t given up on Frost and this team.

All Huskers/KLIN
Hickey

The Cornhuskers looked every bit an offense debuting four new assistant coaches this spring, including a new coordinator.

Saturday Tradition
Callahan

Nothing about [Casey] Thompson’s day really moved the needle, but then again they really didn’t let him open things up.

HuskerOnline
Christopherson

Whatever is inside that wrapper on offense, you don’t know any more than you did before Saturday.

Vogel

Garrett Nelson might be Nebraska’s best player in 2022. ... The outside linebacker’s growth over three seasons has been steady and consistent.

Shatel

This spring game had little chance of showing us anything of substance. But that’s okay. The real stuff happens in the fall.

Sipple

It’s a work in progress. We’ve heard that a lot around here in the last 20 years or so, but it’s true. Again.

While many of the tight ends didn’t play Saturday, AJ Rollins did, and he made the most of his spring.
