Coming out of a bye week, Nebraska sits at 4-5 and in second-to-last place in the Big Ten West. The Huskers need two wins in their final three games to achieve bowl eligibility.
Needless to say, the season has not played out how many hoped it would in Lincoln. Sophomore quarterback Adrian Martinez hasn’t put up huge numbers, partially due to injuries and partially due to inconsistency.
It is that last part that head coach Scott Frost is trying to correct heading into the home stretch. Asked today what he wants to see from Martinez going forward, Frost cited consistency.
Scott Frost says he's looking for more consistency from Adrian Martinez. When there are opportunities in passing game, get the ball there. That type of thing.
As for the center position, the snaps have gotten better. Frost said Jurgens' talent is obvious.

Martinez has thrown for 1,492 yards and only seven touchdowns this season, against six interceptions. His 399 yards rushing lead the team, and he’s second on the squad in rushing touchdowns with five.
Nebraska’s final three games are against Wisconsin and Iowa at home, with a road trip to Maryland sandwiched in between. It is unlikely the Huskers will beat the Badgers this weekend, though a win over the Terrapins isn’t out of the question the following week.
If that happens, Nebraska will need to spring an upset over Iowa in the season finale to reach a bowl game.
