As for the matchup on the field, Frost was pleased with the overall performance was ‘good’.
“It’s a great chance to showcase the great fans that we have, but from an evaluation standpoint as a coach, we’ve been looking at 14 other practices and this is a small piece of it.”
Nebraska Quarterback Adrian Martinez expressed excitement about the future.
“We had a few mental errors, but I’m proud of the guys and I’m proud of how hard they worked this spring, and I’m excited for what’s to come in the fall.”
