The Huskers hold first spring practice

The Mike Riley era at Nebraska has begun. The first Husker spring practice is in the books.

LINCOLN, Neb. - No more talking or guessing what might be. The Mike Riley era at Nebraska has officially started.

The Huskers held their first spring practice of the year on Saturday, with temps hitting in the upper 50s for most of the practice.

The day was broke up into two sessions, with one squad starting around 10:00 (first-team and third-team) and the other around 11:30 (second-team and third-team). Both teams practiced special teams together.

“I liked it (practice format), I think that it will be good to look at the film, but my thought is as it was happening out there was everyone got a chance to practice,” Riley said. “It is a pretty long sustained work for the coaches, as they stay through the day but I think for the players, their time is pretty concise, they basically went through special teams, an individual period, pass skeleton period and then a team period.”
