Top storylines: Scott Frost has not gotten off to a dream start at Nebraska. The Cornhuskers lost their first game of the season to Colorado 33-28 and then followed that up with a 24-19 loss to Troy.

The Cornhuskers started freshman Adrian Martinez in their first game at quarterback. Martinez was doing well and had 187 yards passing, 117 rushing yards and two TDs before sustaining a knee injury that took him out of the game.

Martinez has been a full participant in practice this week and is listed as probable for the game against Michigan on Saturday.

Quarterback Andrew Bunch started the second game and had 226 yard passing but the Cornhuskers still lost to Troy.

The wide receiver group is probably the strength of the Nebraska team, specifically Stanley Morgan Jr., who led the Big Ten West in receiving last year with 986 yards.

Morgan has 10 catches for 139 yards through his first two games.

Greg Bell is the leading rusher for the Cornhuskers with 168 yards rushing.

On the defensive side of the ball, Luke Gifford has 14 tackles and 5 tackles for loss through two games.
