Nebraska has announced a new update for Huskers' starting quarterback Adrian Martinez at halftime of today's game against Michigan. The freshman quarterback won't be playing in the second half.
Huskers head coach Scott Frost told reporters at halftime that he will be keeping Martinez out of the second half.
Nebraska will be playing walk-on quarterback Andrew Bunch.
This is probably the right decision.
It was a brutal first half for Nebraska, as the Huskers trailed the Wolverines, 39-0, after two quarters of play.
Martinez, who is coming off a knee injury, was under attack on almost every play. He was sacked or hurried basically every time he dropped back.
Nebraska is now on the verge of an 0-3 start to the Scott Frost era, but keeping Martinez healthy is the key to the rest of the season. We'll see how the Huskers can respond moving forward.
