It appears that head coach Bo Pelini will wait until game time again to decide on his starting quarterback for this Saturday against Oklahoma. Now, I was wrong two weeks ago when I predicted Cody Green would start against Iowa State and was surprised when I saw Green start against Baylor. So, I’m having a hard time figuring out where Pelini’s head is at, but after listening to him evaluate Green’s play on Saturday, I’m leaning toward the freshmen getting the start.
The bigger concern for Pelini has to be the inconsistent running game. Regardless of who is under center, the Huskers need to get the running game back. No surprise here, the Big 12 announced Nebraska’s Jared Crick as the Big 12 defensive player of the week. A team record five sacks, 13 tackles, 10 solos and seven for loss.
