Squads Announced for Red-White Spring Game

By NU Athletic Communications

Lincoln -- The final rosters for Saturday's Red-White Spring Game were unveiled Thursday morning. The teams were selected by some of the 2011 Huskers seniors Wednesday afternoon and were finalized following Thursday's morning practice - the final workout for the Huskers before Saturday's 1 p.m. game.

Complete rosters for both teams are available by clicking on the enclosed PDF link.

The three spring games under Bo Pelini have been tightly contested, with Red team posting a 21-16 victory last spring, and this year's teams look to be evenly matched as well.

The Red team features big-play ability on offense with quarterback Taylor Martinez, wide receiver Brandon Kinnie and tight end Kyler Reed highlighting the offensive returning starters. The team also has a pair of experienced offensive tackles in Jermarcus Hardrick and Marcel Jones. The defense is anchored by a ball-hawking secondary which features all-conference cornerback Alfonzo Dennard and safeties Austin Cassidy and Courtney Osborne.

The White team, which is looking to snap a five-game losing streak in the series, features strong play at the line of scrimmage. Senior center Mike Caputo and tight end Ben Cotton will look to break open some holes for I-back Rex Burkhead and quarterback Cody Green.  On defense, Baker Steinkuhler and Terrence Moore anchor a defensive front, while All-American linebacker Lavonte David and Will Compton give the White team a physical defensive presence.
