  2020 PRESEASON MAXWELL AWARD WATCH LIST: QB Adrian Martinez, Nebraska,...Martinez, who was also named to the Maxwell Award watch list in 2019, has started the last two seasons of the Huskers. The Fresno, Calif., native started 10 games as a sophomore, completing nearly 60 percent of his passes for 1,956 yards and 10 TDs, while also rushing for 626 yards and seven scores. He ranked third in the Big Ten in total offense per game (258.2 ypg). In his first two seasons, Martinez has tied or set 11 marks, including NU's career record for games with at least 400 yards of total offense (four). - Nebraska Football

  The Legislature on Tuesday gave final 37-6 approval to a bill that would allow college athletes in Nebraska to earn money through personal endorsement of products and use of their name, image or likeness. The measure (LB962), sponsored by Sen. Megan Hunt of Omaha, was modeled after legislation enacted by California lawmakers a year ago. The proposal, part of a growing movement that would dramatically alter the traditional status of amateur college athletes, will head to Gov. Pete Ricketts' desk. Hunt's Nebraska Fair Pay to Play Act would also allow athletes to make money by promoting sponsored content on social media and by giving private lessons or hosting camps.

Opponents of the change have argued that it will ignite a new kind of bidding war in the recruitment of college athletes in which donors or business leaders may play a leading role in offering the prospect of lucrative endorsement prospects or opportunities to recruits. Supporters have argued that universities, TV sports networks and other businesses are enriched by the performance of college athletes while they receive no financial benefit beyond athletic scholarships and accompanying benefits provided by the universities they attend. "With more than 25 states looking at this issue, Nebraska has an opportunity to be a leader in providing economic freedoms to college athletes," Hunt said in a statement following enactment of the bill. "Nebraska is the third state in the nation to enact name, image and likeness rights legislation," she said. - Lincoln Journal Star

  Adrian Martinez's struggle was real last season. But the Nebraska junior quarterback thinks what he learned could produce benefits that are just as real. He sheds quite a bit of light during a recent "No Struggle No Story" podcast, acknowledging that his injuries last season coupled with his team's losing wore on him mentally. He also acknowledged the inherent challenges Nebraska faces in striving to become a national power again. Throughout the interview, the California native shows signs of personal growth. Yeah, the whole college thing - learning, coping, growing, thriving - seemingly is working for him. "A big operation like this, turning around one of the top football programs in the country, is tough," said Martinez, noting the strength of the Big Ten Conference. "It's going to take some time. I think we knew that."

He's now 9-12 in two seasons as Nebraska's starting quarterback after going 5-5 in 2019. Coming off a strong freshman season in 2018, he admits he felt the weight of high expectations entering last year. Then came an overtime loss at Colorado in the second game, then a 48-7 home loss to Ohio State in the fifth game. He felt pressure mounting. "It was tough," said the 6-foot-2, 225-pound native of Fresno. "I won't lie. It definitely got to me a bit during that stretch of the year, when we lost to Ohio State in a big way in a prime-time game. That was tough. We were hoping for a better result." He alluded to his injuries. First, it was a knee injury that occurred near the end of an Oct. 5 home win against Northwestern. He missed back-to-back games - losses at Minnesota and to Indiana in Lincoln. - Lincoln Journal Star

  Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez endured what many considered to be a sophomore slump last season. He's apparently working hard this offseason to bust out of the slump. "I think there's some things that he's done differently this year that will give him an opportunity to be better," Husker head coach Scott Frost said Monday. Asked for specifics, the coach said, "I think it's just his mindset and his approach. He came in his first year and had to compete for that spot, and he looked like a competitor every single day in practice."

Martinez's mindset carried into competition as the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Californian averaged a school-record 295.1 yards of total offense per game and was named a freshman All-American by the Football Writers Association of America. "Year 2, because of the situation, I think he was able to put it in cruise control a little more, and I think that showed up on the field a little bit," Frost said. "That's not to put everything on him. There's a lot of things he couldn't control. But I don't think he'll be lax in his preparation ever again." After completing 64.6% of his passes as a freshman, Martinez dipped to 59.4% last season. After averaging 237.9 passing yards per game in 2018, he averaged 195.6 in 2019. - Lincoln Journal Star

  Adrian Martinez had a promising freshman season for Nebraska and then fell short of massive expectations in 2019. In both of his years as NU's starting quarterback, he's missed time due to injury, in large part because he's been asked to carry a heavy workload in the run game. Martinez is a serious talent, works hard and has leadership qualities, so it befuddled Nebraska coaches last year as to why he struggled. The bottom line is he must make good decisions - last year's 10-to-9 touchdown-to-interception ratio won't cut it and he's turned the ball over 27 times in 21 career starts - and he must improve his accuracy. - Lincoln Journal Star

  Nebraska announced Friday that offensive coordinator Troy Walters has left the program, ending a four-year working relationship with head coach Scott Frost. The program said Walters, who also served as receivers coach, was leaving by mutual agreement with the Cornhuskers. No other details were given. Walters had worked with Frost for four years, the last two at Nebraska and the previous two at Central Florida. Walters was a finalist for the 2017 Broyles Award, given annually to the nation's top assistant coach. "Troy has been a valued member of our coaching staff for the past four years," Frost said. "Troy is a good mentor for his players, provides great energy on and off the field, and carries himself with a presence off the field that will be missed. I want to thank him for his work on our coaching staff, and wish him and his family all the best going forward."

Though Walters was offensive coordinator, Frost has handled the play-calling. The Huskers were 5-7 last season, a one-win improvement over 2018, but the offensive production declined partly because of injuries to quarterback Adrian Martinez. The Huskers' receivers also underperformed. Walters also had coaching stings at Indiana State, Texas A&M, North Carolina State and Colorado. The former Stanford receiver also played for four teams during an eight-year career in the NFL. - AP College Football

  Nebraska ended a four-game skid and kept alive its hope of becoming bowl eligible by defeating mistake-prone Maryland 54-7 Saturday behind a standout performance by quarterback Adrian Martinez. The Cornhuskers (5-6, 3-5 Big Ten) took a 17-0 lead in the first quarter and coasted to their first victory since Oct. 5. With a win at home against Iowa on Friday in the regular-season finale, Nebraska will become eligible for a bowl bid for the first time since 2016. Martinez ran for 94 yards and a score and went 16 for 25 for 194 yards and two touchdowns, both to JD Spielman. He was taken out in the third quarter with the score 44-0.

The defense deserves some credit, too. Maryland (3-8, 1-7) could muster only 206 yards and nine first downs in its sixth straight defeat. A 58-yard touchdown run by Javon Leake with 3:13 remaining ruined Nebraska's bid for its first shutout since a 33-0 rout of Arizona in the 2009 Holiday Bowl. Maryland has absorbed many a lopsided loss during coach Mike Locksley's first season, but this one might be the most embarrassing given that the Cornhuskers had previously won only once on the road. The Terrapins lost two quarterbacks to injuries along the way, Tyrrell Pigrome and Lance LeGendre, who separated a shoulder. The bumbling Terps lost four fumbles, three by Leake, turnovers that led by 17 Nebraska points. - Nebraska/AP College Football

  Adrian Martinez passed for 327 yards and three touchdowns to lead Nebraska over Illinois 42-38 Saturday night in the Big Ten Conference opener for both teams. The Cornhuskers (3-1, 1-0) put up 690 yards of total offense compared to 299 by Illinois (2-2, 0-1). Martinez also rushed 18 times for 188 yards. Wan'Dale Robinson carried the ball 19 times for 89 yards and a touchdown. Dedrick Mills rushed 12 times for 62 yards and a touchdown.

"He (Martinez) is a good player. I'm glad he wears the scarlet and cream," said Nebraska coach Scott Frost. "He goes in and wants to take over a game. He is clearly capable of that." Brandon Peters was 9 of 22 for 78 yards passing with a touchdown and one interception for Illinois. Reggie Corbin carried the ball 20 times for 134 yards and a touchdown. Ra'Von Bonner and Peters also had rushing touchdowns for the Illini. - Nebraska/AP College Football

  Adrian Martinez threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, Dedrick Mills rushed for 116 yards and Nebraska beat Northern Illinois 44-8 on Saturday night. The Cornhuskers (2-1) bounced back from blowing a 17-point lead in an overtime loss at Colorado last week. NIU (1-2) won 21-17 in Lincoln two years ago but was no match this time. Nebraska had 525 yards of total offense, limited the Huskies to 74 yards rushing and posted its largest margin of victory over a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent since a 39-point win over South Alabama in 2015.

"What's made us good as a staff is always keeping a foot on the gas," Nebraska coach Scott Frost said. "I want our guys to play like that all the time." Martinez threw for 257 yards and had 301 yards of total offense, the ninth time in 14 career starts he's gone over 300. "Adrian is going to keep getting better, too," Frost said. "There are still some things he needs to learn. But he's still a true sophomore. He's a really good player and he's going to make whatever plays we need him to." - Nebraska/AP College Football
