Oklahoma St, Nebraska on cusp of division titles
Question of the Day
“We’ve had a chance late in the season the last couple years to do some things but we didn’t come through,” Gundy said. “This isn’t completely uncharted waters.”
Third-year Nebraska coach Bo Pelini appears to have his program on solid footing as it gets ready to leave the Big 12 for the Big Ten next season.
The Huskers are positioned to play for their first Big 12 title since 1999 after losing the core of its 2009 defense and having a new starting quarterback in redshirt freshman Taylor Martinez.
Roy Helu Jr. and Martinez are on the verge of giving Nebraska two 1,000-yard rushers in the same season for the first time since Heisman Trophy winner Eric Crouch and Dahrran Diedrick in 2001.
Nebraska has shown versatility after losing Martinez to a right ankle sprain against Missouri on Oct. 30. The Huskers have used Rex Burkhead in the wildcat formation to take pressure off the quarterbacks the last two games.
Martinez, who missed the Nov. 6 overtime win at Iowa State, started against Kansas and ran for 71 yards in a 20-3 win. The defense held the Jayhawks to 87 yards and five first downs.
“I don’t think we’re the finished product by any means,” Pelini said. “We’ve gotten better, our program, and we’re moving in the right direction. I’ll about leave it at that. We really haven’t accomplished anything yet.”
