LINCOLN, NE - Tommy Armstrong passed for 102 yards and a touchdown, and King Frazier ran for 64 yards and a touchdown in the Nebraska Red-White Game on Saturday.
Armstrong played six series in relief of starter Taylor Martinez and completed 5 of 7 passes.
The redshirt freshman's touchdown pass was a well-placed 37-yarder that hit Alonzo Moore in stride along the sideline. Coach Bo Pelini said after the scrimmage that Armstrong would go into the fall as Martinez's top backup.
Ron Kellogg III, the No. 2 quarterback last season, was 11 for 12 for 148 yards and a score.
The afternoon had a touch of emotion when 7-year-old cancer patient Jack Hoffman of Atkinson, Neb., ran onto the field. He took a handoff 69 yards for a touchdown, with players mobbing him in the end zone.
The Red squad beat the White 30-21 in front of 60,174.
