72,992 fans poured into Memorial Stadium to witness the Huskers' annual spring football game.  They divided up the teams along offensive and defensive fronts.  The offense dawned red jerseys while the defense wore white.  And the defense ended up coming away with the victory 46-41.

The running game appears to be in peak form leaving the spring.  Tommy Armstrong led the ground attack with 120 yards on just six carries.  Terrell Newby, Devine Ozigbo, Mikale Wilbon, and Austin Rose all put up solid numbers on the ground as well.  They rushed for 343 yards at just a hair over five yards per carry as a team.

The passing attack wasn't nearly as potent.  The quarterbacks struggled with accuracy and consistency throughout the game.  As a unit they didn't throw a single touchdown, but they did throw one interception.

The defense won the contest and were able to generate plenty of pressure.  They produced three sacks and 10 tackles for loss in the game.
