Nebraska QB Adrian Martinez Named Big Ten Freshman of the Week

September 10, 2018

Nebraska true freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez's performance wasn't perfect against Colorado, but it was spectacular nonetheless. The performance didn't go unnoticed either. Martinez was named the Big Ten Freshman Player of the Week.

Martinez ran for 117 yards and two touchdowns (the first coming on a 41-yard keeper) while throwing for another 187 yards on 15-of-20 passing with a touchdown and a pick against Colorado.

The freshman quarterback left the game early with a knee injury and backup Andrew Bunch had to close for the Huskers. Frost said the initial feedback on the injury is "semi-encouraging" but more on the severity of the injury should be known soon.

The injury soured an otherwise impressive showing from Martinez, which did not go unnoticed in Week 2 by the Big Ten Conference.
