Sunday was scrimmage day for Nebraska football as the Huskers held their ninth practice of preseason camp.

The session was closed to the public and the media, but the athletic department provided some glimpses of the action by releasing this video on social media.

On another play, transfer defensive back Tyreke Johnson breaks up a deep pass intended for wide receiver Omar Manning.
