Spring Game Notes: Cornhusker QBs Stick Together
April 17, 2019
You know you're playing in a spring exhibition when you forget your team allegiances.
Adrian Martinez, the starting quarterback for the Red team in Nebraska's annual Red-White Spring Game on Saturday, celebrated with triumph on the sideline when back-up quarterback Matt Masker completed a 55-yard touchdown pass to Wyatt Liewer.
One problem, though.
Masker played for the White team.
"I kind of realized it midway through," Martinez said sheepishly. "I was running down the sideline and I was like, 'Oh man, maybe I shouldn't be doing this.' I tried to play it both ways. It was tough."
