Lincoln, Neb.-The Nebraska football team wrapped up its preparation for Saturday's Big Ten conference road opener against Purdue on Thursday afternoon. The team practiced in helmets and shorts for 90 minutes inside the Hawks Center and outside at the Ed and Joyanne Gass Practice Fields.
Head Coach Bo Pelini met with the media after practice, noting that redshirt freshman Tommy Armstrong Jr. will be making his third start Saturday versus Purdue.
"As of right now it is (going to be) just like we have been at the quarterback position." Pelini said.
Pelini also added that senior Quarterback Taylor Martinez will still make the trip up to West Lafayette, but will not play.
"Like I said, Taylor is still day-to-day, and he is getting better. He is a lot better than he has been."
