No. 1 defense comes up big in Huskers' 1990 spring finale

The No. 1 defense scored two touchdowns and forced five turnovers as the Reds beat the Whites, 44-34, in the Nebraska football spring game.

It was a ragged first quarter, featuring nine fumbles, two interceptions and five penalties. Six possessions into the contest, the first-team defense had outscored the first-team offense, 7-3.

"We had a lot of mistakes early," coach Tom Osborne said. "But overall it was a good final game."

Quarterbacks Mike Grant and Mickey Joseph combined to complete 13 of 22 passes for 215 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.

Splitting his time on the Red and White squads, I-back Scott Baldwin was the game's leading rusher, with 115 yards on 16 carries.

Reds safety Reggie Cooper intercepted two passes and retrned one 47 yards for a touchdown.

Twenty-minute quarters were played in the first half, contributing to the hefty total of 166 plays run by the two offenses.

Senior kicker Gregg Barrios was the games leading scorer with 14 points. He connected on all three of his field goal attempts and was 5-for-5 on PATs.
