LINCOLN, Neb. ? The Nebraska football team concentrated on special teams during the second of two practices on Tuesday, as the Huskers continue two-a-day practices. NU began the day with a two-hour session on the turf at Memorial Stadium.
The afternoon practice lasted about an hour and half as Nebraska keyed in on special teams for the first time this fall.
"Today was a good day for us along the lines of emphasizing special teams and giving the players a little bit of a break," Head Coach Frank Solich said. "I think this afternoon was really productive in a lot of ways, and they needed a break. They have been pushing themselves hard and the heat has been tough."
The Huskers continue the hard work as preparations for the upcoming season intensifies.
"We have been going three stations all the way through practice to this point," Solich said. "There hasn?t been a lot of standing around on the practice field."
NU will return to the practice field Wednesday morning for its first practice of the fall camp in full pads. Players will be available to the media following the two-hour morning practice at Memorial Stadium, while Solich will address the media following the afternoon workout. Assistants will also be available after the second practice.
