LINCOLN — It wasn't until well after their first collegiate game Saturday that freshmen Josh Banderas and Nate Gerry realized they'd played side-by-side for a dozen snaps.
The roommates didn't notice each other. They've been buddies since early in the recruiting process, and they ascended the depth chart together, using portions of their free time ever since to quiz one another on formations and play calls.
