Junior wideout JD Spielman will be out. The decision to do so is for precautionary reasons as Spielman has missed several practices this spring with what coaches have called a minor injury. Spielman did not play in last year’s spring game.
Other notable players who will be held out include junior tight end Jack Stoll, sophomore running back Maurice Washington, freshman athlete Wan’Dale Robinson, freshman linebacker Nick Henrich and freshman tight end Chris Hickman.

This season’s annual scrimmage kicks off at 1 p.m. CT on Saturday, April 13, in front of another sold-out crowd. It will be broadcast on BTN for the second straight season.
It will also mark the first chance for fans to see highly anticipated debuts of several freshmen from the 2019 recruiting class, including McCaffrey, Nance and Nelson.
Nebraska’s 2018 Red-White Game — head coach Scott Frost’s first game back on the Nebraska sideline — drew a program record 86,818 fans, the most for a spring game across college football.
The red team dominated that game, winning 49-9. That squad featured mostly players who became starters and regular snap-getters throughout the season, including Martinez at quarterback. He went 10-for-13 passing for 114 yards and a score through the air while picking up 60 yards and three scores rushing on 14 carries.
