LINCOLN — Junior kicker Mauro Bondi has had better days. He missed an extra point and an 18-yard field goal Saturday. Though Bondi has been one of the nation's best kickoff specialists — his 48 touchbacks ranked sixth in the nation last year — coach Bo Pelini said Bondi struggled with field-goal kicking in spring camp.
Pelini essentially declared the competition for field goals open among Bondi, sophomore walk-on Spencer Lindsay and incoming true freshman Drew Brown. Brown, a scholarship kicker from Southlake (Texas) Carroll High School, is the younger brother of former Husker and NFL kicker Kris Brown.
