Lincoln - The Husker football team moved from the indoor confines of the Hawks Championship Center to the turf of Memorial Stadium for the first time under Head Coach Bo Pelini on Friday. The Big Red practiced for the second time during the spring in preparation of the April 19, Red-White Spring Game.

Sunny skies and crisp spring air greeted the Huskers outside, as Nebraska focused on drill work for much of practice before concluding with several sessions of teamwork.

"Right now we are just working on getting things installed and the spring time is a good time to focus on the details. You really hone in on what you need to accomplish," said Nebraska offensive coordinator Shawn Watson.

When asked what Watson calls his offense, he simple replied "it's the Nebraska Offense".

Senior Nate Swift said it is really nice to work with some of the coaches that originally recruited him.

"Having 'old Nebraska' around here is really nice. Mixing in the new offense and getting back to the old ways really makes it feel like Nebraska," said Swift.

The Big Red will continue practice indoors tomorrow from approximately 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., followed by the Husker Youth Experience, a free clinic for 500 youth.

Registration for the Husker Youth Experience is already closed and is designed to provide children ages 8 through 8th grade in Nebraska and surrounding areas (within 100 miles of Lincoln) an opportunity to be coached by the University of Nebraska coaching staff and Nebraska players.
