LINCOLN, Neb. – Nebraska practiced in Memorial Stadium on Wednesday afternoon. A few notes from practice:
- Offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf said, overall, QB Tommy Armstrong’s interceptions have decreased in practice, especially during the 7-on-7 drill.
- Langsdorf said the area where the turnovers are still a problem is in the 2-minute drill, but said that the turnovers in that drill are also going down.
- Turnovers, especially from Armstrong, will determine wins and losses this year, Langsdorf said, so there has been a large focus on it in practice and in camp.
- In terms of freshmen who will play on Saturday, Langsdorf was very high on true freshman RB Tre Bryant. Bryant will return kicks for the Huskers and Langsdorf said Bryant will also most likely be used in some situational plays.
- More than anything, Langsdorf said he likes Bryant’s maturity. “He’s a mature kid. He’s ready to play and we’ll get him in situational stuff and get his feet wet,” Langsdorf said.
- Senior wide receiver Alonzo Moore said the pregame tribute to punter Sam Foltz, who died in a car accident in July, will be tough to shake off emotionally on Saturday. Moore said it’ll be good to do, and that he looks forward to it since Foltz touched so many lives.
