The Buckeyes face a big challenge this Saturday in Lincoln. No. 5 Ohio State plays Nebraska in a pivotal Big Ten contest. While OSU has been dominant through its first four games, this will be its toughest test so far.

The Cornhuskers are in their second year under head coach Scott Frost. This is expected to be a big bounce-back season after going 4-8 in 2018. While Nebraska is 3-1 this year, the record includes a disappointing loss to Colorado.

Nonetheless, the Cornhuskers are hoping for a big win on Saturday. To do so, they'll need a big performance from quarterback Adrian Martinez.

Ahead of Saturday's matchup, OSU head coach Ryan Day met with the media. Day had high praise for Nebraska's quarterback.

The Buckeyes aren't going to be taking Martinez and the Cornhuskers lightly. The dual-threat QB is a home-run threat from anywhere on the field.

Through four games this year, Martinez has 1,052 passing yards, 234 yards on the ground and 10 total touchdowns. Many feel the best is yet to come for the young quarterback. Will Martinez play his best football yet on Saturday? He'll be playing against a tough defense.

The OSU defense is allowing just nine points per game this season. Nebraska's offense, on the other hand, is averaging 38 points per game.

Saturday will be a fun one.
