Following the 49-3 win over Florida Atlantic, we had an opportunity to see two true freshmen on the offensive side of the ball. Running back Rex Burkhead and quarterback Cody Green. Sean Callahan of HuskersIllustrated.com talked to both of them about their college debuts.
The guy I was impressed with was quarterback Zac Lee. He under threw one receiver that led to an interception, but there is no doubt he’s got the arm strength. Head Coach Bo Pelini was impressed overall with his maturity and decision making on the field. Offensive coordinator Shawn Watson says with Lee’s arm strength, they’re able to use the entire field.
Pelini was happy with winning the turnover battle 3-1, but says the constant problem with penalties continue to plague the Huskers who were flagged nine times for 86 yards.
