Sophomore Blake Johnson has been working as the No. 1 punter, but he struggled Saturday with distance and hang time.
“Blake didn’t punt the ball very well, but he has been one of the most productive guys until today,” Bret Bielema said. “Today was the biggest crowd we’ve had and we’ll address that. We need to make him move forward.”
Connor Limpert, the No. 1 man on kickoffs, also punted.
“As a left-footed punter, that brings a whole new game to it,” Bielema said. “And he actually can do rugby from the left, which is a nice added feature.”
Redshirt freshman quarterback Cole Kelley punted Saturday during the closed portion of practice and Bielema said he hit two 55-yarders.
“He looked pretty ... good punting today, and he did it in high school,” Bielema said. “He turns it over really well.
“I’m not saying his operation time is great, but you get the element that he can throw the football in addition to being back there. It’s kind of neat to play with.”
