"As of right now it is (going to be) just like we have been at the quarterback position." Pelini said.
This will be Armstrong's third career start and on the road in West Lafayette, Ind. and accompanying the Huskers will be Nebraska's leader in career starts at the position.
"Like I said, Taylor is still day-to-day, and he is getting better. He is a lot better than he has been."
- Pat Smith has won the kicking duties for this Saturday. The Huskers missed two extra point attempts in their Big Ten conference opener against Illinois last weekend.
- Jamal Turner practiced today and should be ready for Saturday. Turner has been dealing with a hamstring injury.
- Purdue has handed over the reigns of their offense to their own freshman quarterback, Danny Etling. There is good reason to believe that the Purdue offense will look different this weekend when the Huskers come calling.
"I think somewhat they have to run what they have been doing, but they might lean to some different plays or different personal groupings." Pelini said, "When he came into the game last week they slung the ball around, and did not run the ball much when he was in the game."
