There was a major upset in the Big Ten last weekend, with Purdue falling at home to Eastern Michigan. Could another one be on the way today? It looks like it.

Nebraska, which fell in its season opener to Colorado last Saturday, is without starting quarterback Adrian Martinez this afternoon. The Huskers' offense is hurting in a major way.

Walk-on quarterback Andrew Bunch is starting in Martinez' place. Nebraska's offense has struggled to protect him. The Huskers also have multiple turnovers.

It's Troy 10, Nebraska 0 with about 12 minutes to play in the second quarter.

Nebraska hired Scott Frost knowing it was a multi-year project to get the Huskers back to the level they want to be at. However, starting the season 0-2 with back-to-back home losses would be quite the blow.

The Huskers and the Trojans are playing on BTN.
