The Huskers walked off the practice field on Tuesday, and the whole team looked in high spirits.

Freshman Alonzo Moore worked with the offense at wide receiver on Tuesday. Moore was recruited as an athlete, and was expected to play cornerback.

Position Battles 

Defensive back coach Terry Joseph said that Harvey Jackson has seen playing time at the safety position opposite Daimion Stafford with the number one defense.

Fullbacks C.J. Zimmer and Mike Marrow have split reps with the number one offense evenly.

Joshua Mitchell is seeing a lot of playing time as the corner opposite Mohammad Seisay, and Mitchell has coaches raving about his camp performance.

Sophomore safety Corey Cooper has been working as the dime corner with the number one defense.

Game Prep 

With the first game of the season 11 days away, Bo Pelini said four true freshman could see playing time September 1, against Southern Miss. Pelini said, defensive tackle Aaron Curry, Defensive end Avery Moss, running back Imani Cross, and walk-on fullback Andy Janovich are the freshmen expected to see the playing time this season, Pelini said. Janovich will likely play mostly on special teams.
