LINCOLN, Neb. - Nebraska senior quarterback Taylor Martinez's last spring game in a Husker uniform might have been his best, and the eventual four-year starter looks ready for the 2013 season.
Martinez finished the game 8-for-10, for 105 yards and a touchdown, showing a variety of different throws.
While Martinez's biggest asset might be his legs, Nebraska chose to go with a no hit policy on the California native, who played limited series.
"I thought we looked really good on both sides of the ball, and we moved the ball down on the defense. I think it looked pretty good," said Martinez. "We just treated it like another practice, and we just came out there did our thing. We normally practice like that, so that why we did well."
Martinez was asked what made him happiest this spring?
"Pretty much everything. They are still grasping all of the new things we have learned later on in the season coming into the spring. The offense will keep on learning until we get things exactly how Coach (Tim) Beck wants them," said Martinez. "With having experienced receivers and an experienced tight end, it pushes the process a lot further than having to restart. They all pretty much know the plays and it is the same the offensive line, so you can pretty much advance our offense to the next level."
