The goal for Cody Green last week at quarterback was to do a good job of just managing the game. Offensive coordinator Shawn Watson made it seem like they didn’t throw too much into the game plan for Green to handle and Watson said given everything that went into getting ready for that game, Green graded out just fine.
The Wildcat formation was something that Watson has always had in his back pocket this season and it was a formation the Huskers work on quite a bit in practice and it came in very handy against Iowa State. Watson says that Rex Burkhead is a natural choice to run out of that formation and even has the ability to throw the ball, which was in the plan, but not implemented in the game on Saturday.
Given that this game is against Kansas, does Watson and Bo Pelini give Martinez another week to rest his ankle and save him for more important games down the stretch?
