Nebraska coach Scott Frost made it official Sunday, announcing Adrian Martinez will be the starting quarterback for the Nebraska’s season opener.
Martinez, a native of Fresno, Calif., will become the first true freshman to start a season opener in Nebraska history. He beat out redshirt freshman Tristan Gebbia for the job.
The Cornhuskers released their first official depth chart for the 2018 season Sunday morning via e-mail, and first-year coach Frost listed Martinez’s name atop the quarterbacks.
