Huskers' 1st QB competition since 2010 underway this spring

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Patrick O'Brien won a coin flip, so he took the first snaps with the No. 1 offense when Nebraska opened spring practice Saturday.

The Cornhuskers have a true quarterback competition for the first time since 2010, and coach Mike Riley says it's dead even between O'Brien and Tanner Lee. Lee will take the first snaps at the next practice.

The offense will look much different without Tommy Armstrong Jr., the four-year starter who was a running threat. O'Brien, a redshirt freshman, and Lee, a junior who transferred from Tulane, are true pro-style QBs.
