Huskers Prepare For Final Scrimmage

Lincoln–12 players, including freshman quarterback Curt Dukes, junior fullback Judd Davies and junior I-back Robin Miller will not participate in the Nebraska football team's Friday morning scrimmage at Memorial Stadium.

    Following Wednesday's final session of two-a-day practices head coach Frank Solich talked about what he wants to see from his players in the final major scrimmage before the August 24th season-opener with Arizona State.

“What we're after is really excellent execution. You hope to see a scrimmage where we're able to move the football down the field and put some points on the board and execute very well,” said Solich.

He continued, “Defensively you want to keep the big play from happening and defensively they did a pretty good job of that last week (Saturday scrimmage).  The thing they need to do though is make sure they don't have broken assignments.”
