When asked yesterday how quarterback Adrian Martinez looked in practice this week, Nebraska coach Scott Frost said “he’s got dark hair and weighs about 225 pounds.” 

Next question – how has the team looked as it prepares to visit Purdue?  “I thought the guys did some things better this week,” Frost said. “Obviously, there’s still some things we’re working on and working through.  Bottom line, we just have to show up on Saturday and play and execute.  We have to do better on third down on defense and not make mistakes on offense.”  

Tomorrow’s kickoff is at 11 a.m.  The pre-game starts at 6 on News Talk 900 KJSK and will be joined at 10:30 on KLIR 101.
