Dienhart: Some things learned--and not learned--from Saturday

There were four spring games on Saturday, with Minnesota, Maryland, Nebraska and Northwestern finishing drills. It’s one last time to kick the tires on each team before a long offseason.

Other Cornhuskers who should be selected are wideout Kenny Bell,

Northwestern Bat Race

Video: Get dizzy! Northwestern holds latest Dizzy Bat Race

Pat Fitzgerald and Northwestern know how to put a bow on practice. They have a watermelon eating contest to mark the end of Camp Kenosha, and they have a dizzy bat race to signal the end of spring drills.
