During Nebraska’s 23-20 overtime loss to Michigan State last week, quarterback Adrian Martinez briefly left the game. Huskers head coach Scott Frost is addressing some rumors ahead of Saturday’s game against Northwestern. Frost said in a press conference on Thursday that he’s been hearing some “ridiculous rumors” about his starting quarterback. Martinez is fine, according to him, and will play against the Wildcats. “I’ve heard some of the rumors… Ridiculous rumors…”
“I’ve heard some of the rumors… Ridiculous rumors…” He most likely has lupus, leprosy, smallpox, and a variety of other illnesses. He’s in good shape. He’s going to take part in the game. ”
Martinez threw for 244 yards and 70 percent completions against the Spartans last week. However, in the last two games, he’s been sacked 12 times.
It wouldn’t surprise me if Martinez succumbs to the beating at some point this year.

Adrian Martinez is one of the best offensive players in the Big Ten this season. Through five games, Martinez has 1,261 yards, five touchdowns, and two interceptions. Unfortunately, his efforts have yet to translate into wins against any of Nebraska’s Power Five opponents. They’ve suffered defeats at the hands of Illinois, Oklahoma, and Michigan State. Scott Frost’s Huskers are 2-3 this season, and he’s starting to feel the heat. Nebraska, on the other hand, plays four of its next five games at home, so the crowd should be on their side for this stretch of games. Will Adrian Martinez continue to shine for the Huskers this season?
Will his outstanding performance result in enough victories to qualify for a bowl game? Nokia News
