LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The growing pains Nebraska went through in its first year under Scott Frost were apparent. There was the program-worst 0-6 start, the seven games in which the defense allowed more than 450 yards and the eight in which it gave up at least 31 points, and there were special-teams breakdowns week after week.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Erik Chinander was a Hawkeye through and through as a kid and then as a walk-on offensive lineman who earned two bachelor's degrees from Iowa.
He is the Nebraska defensive coordinator now, and as much as his eastern Iowa roots mean to him, he says he has no conflicted feelings heading into the Cornhuskers' final game at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City on Friday.
Here's what to watch in the Big Ten this week:
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska got what it wanted out of its game against Bethune-Cookman. The Cornhuskers won, nobody got hurt, and a lot of guys got to play.
Adrian Martinez passed for 213 yards and two touchdowns and Devine Ozigbo ran for 110 and another score — all in the first half — and Nebraska prepped for next week's road game against Ohio State with a 45-9 win Saturday.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Four starts into his career, Nebraska's Adrian Martinez already is showing signs of blossoming into the next standout quarterback coached by Scott Frost.
Frost has mentored some of the nation's best: 2014 Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota and 2015 pass efficiency leader Vernon Adams as Oregon's offensive coordinator, and McKenzie Milton as head coach of the Central Florida team that went from winless to unbeaten in two years.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — There's no tangible evidence to back them up, but first-year coach Scott Frost and his players sense a breakthrough is coming for a winless Nebraska team approaching the midway point of the season.
Mind you, this comes from a team with one of the worst defenses in the nation, the team that averages the most penalties and one that just lost by 17 points at Wisconsin.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The circumstances for Nebraska are far from ideal as it eyes its first road game under new coach Scott Frost next week at Michigan.
The Cornhuskers went late into this week not knowing the status of true freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez, making their Saturday game against Troy a little trickier.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez is day-to-day with a right knee injury and it might be close to game time Saturday until it is known if he can play against Troy.
Martinez was hurt on a short run with about 4 minutes left in the 33-28 loss to Colorado. Coach Scott Frost wouldn't disclose details about the injury Monday other than saying Martinez didn't sustain ligament damage.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska coach Scott Frost said the outlook for injured quarterback Adrian Martinez is "semi-encouraging."
Martinez appeared to hurt his leg at the end of a short run late in the fourth quarter of the Cornhuskers' 33-28 loss to Colorado on Saturday. He had to be helped off the field.
Frost typically doesn't disclose injury information. He said he would know more after talking with doctors.
In an earlier time, a true freshman starting quarterback wasn't necessarily unthinkable. It certainly was an outlier.
Not so much anymore, not in this age of what Rutgers offensive coordinator John McNulty calls the "bred quarterback," those players who immerse themselves in football year-round, get individual coaching from quarterback gurus and arrive on campus ready and expecting to play right away.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — The day after Adrian Martinez was pronounced the winner of Nebraska's quarterback competition, the runner-up left school.
At Clemson, the arrival of celebrated freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence sent three other quarterbacks — one a former five-star recruit who signed just last year — looking for new teams.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska coach Scott Frost says quarterback Tristan Gebbia has been granted a release, freeing him to transfer to another school.
Frost made the announcement Tuesday, four days before the Cornhuskers' opener against Akron.
True freshman Adrian Martinez was named the starting quarterback over the weekend. Gebbia on Monday dropped his classes and did not attend practice.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Two days after clarity came to Nebraska's quarterback situation, things got complicated again.
True freshman Adrian Martinez will be the starter when the Cornhuskers begin the Scott Frost era against Akron on Saturday night. However, Tristan Gebbia, the man he beat out, didn't practice Monday morning and the university registrar said in the afternoon he no longer was enrolled.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — True freshman Adrian Martinez has been named Nebraska's starting quarterback for the opener against Akron on Saturday.
Martinez was No. 1 on the Cornhuskers' depth chart released Sunday.
Martinez beat out redshirt freshman Tristan Gebbia in a close competition. He will be the first true freshman in program history to start an opener at quarterback.
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee will skip his final year of eligibility and enter the NFL draft.
The move was not unexpected in the wake of coach Mike Riley's firing and Scott Frost's hiring.
"After weeks of prayer and consideration with my family, I've decided to enter the NFL Draft and pursue an opportunity that I feel is the best for myself and my family at this time," Lee said in a Twitter post on Thursday.
