Nebraska scrimmages on Saturday

The Nebraska football team scrimmaged for nearly 70 plays on Saturday.

The Nebraska football team practiced for a about 2 ½ hours Saturday in full pads, primarily inside the Hawks Championship Center.

Head coach Mike Riley met with the media after the team concluded practice by scrimmaging for over an hour, the longest scrimmage time this spring.

“I thought we’d had a really good day of practice today,” Riley said. “We had about an hour of just kind of regular practice with periods and drills. We had a scrimmage where we let every guy here play. We scrimmaged for about 68 plays. So that’s pretty good. It was really good to let the guys finish plays and that’s always really important.”
