  Less than four weeks out from Nebraska's season opener against Ohio State, junior Adrian Martinez is the starting quarterback. It's been assumed all offseason, and offensive coordinator Matt Lubick confirmed as much during a news conference Thursday. Still, Martinez is getting a stiff challenge from redshirt freshman Luke McCaffrey. "They're both playing at a high level. I don't know if I look at it as pressure (that McCaffrey is putting on Martinez)," Lubick said. "I think they're both making each other better. We feel good about both guys right now, we really do. As a matter of fact, (walk-on Matt) Masker and Logan (Smothers), our freshman, are playing really well, too. We feel like we have great depth at that position."

In terms of the top job, though, Martinez and McCaffrey are the contenders. Martinez has 21 career starts under his belt and McCaffrey saw limited time last year while maintaining his redshirt. "Adrian is the starter as of today, but Luke has done a great job and it's a friendly competition that makes both guys better," Lubick said. "We've repped both of them with the No. 1s, they've both moved the ball, they've both had great camps so far in non-padded stuff. "That evaluation is always ongoing, but Adrian has improved. He's going to be a better football player this year." - Lincoln Journal Star
