Grand Forks, N.D. - The sun was a welcomed sight on Saturday at Memorial Field as the North Dakota football team resumed spring practices after having Friday's scheduled session postponed.

The team worked out for just over two hours and concluded the session with 10 minutes of live work where the chains were brought out for the first time adding a little intrigue to the final team work of the day. 

"We had another good day," UND head coach Chris Mussman said. "We have some healthy competition out here and that is always good to have. Now, we just have to keep our composure as these practices continue to move along and the intensity increases." 

Notebook
- The first-team defense held redshirt freshman Joe Mollberg and the first-team offense to a three-and-out on the first drive of the live session. 
- Defensive end Spencer Cummings and linebacker Cordero Finley each had a pass break-up during the initial series.
- Classmate Ryan Bartels then led the second-team offense on a nice drive that got all the way down to the 11-yard line before stalling. Bartels ran for two first downs on plays that broke down and junior Adam Shaugabay contributed a first down on a 15-yard run.
- Bartels also connected with sophomore Casey Young for about a 15-yard gain to move the chains once again. The drive stalled on a third-and-seven when Romon Bridges could get only get six yards on a completion from Bartels.
- Young hauled in a deep pass from Jake Hanson when the third-team offense took the field, moving the ball past midfield, but penalties stalled that drive.
- Mollberg and company had one last chance on the fourth drive of the live session, but the unit could only muster one first down on a 12-yard carry by Shaugabay.
- Junior Ben Peters had the lone interception of the day and that came during skelly drills early in the practice.
- Shaugabay and redshirt freshman Kodee Varner shared the carries during the live drills.  The running back trio of Jake Miller, Jer Garman and P.J. Sparks were all relegated to the sidelines with minor hamstring issues.
