The Huskers held their final practice in San Diego yesterday. Bo Pelini met with the media and said there was no doubt that Taylor Martinez would be starting this game at quarterback. Not only is he physically ready to play, but this last month has allowed Martinez a chance to mentally recover as well.
Overall, Pelini couldn’t be happier with the way Taylor has progressed and how much he’s learned and Pelini says you have to remember he’s still just a freshman.
Also in this report, Sean Callahan talks with Pelini about linebackers coach Mike Ekeler leaving for Indiana.
