A.J. Bush gets final spring push in Red-White

A.J. Bush was once deemed a project at the quarterback position. Now the redshirt freshman quarterback is pushing for a starting job at Nebraska with the installation of a new offense by head coach Mike Riley and offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf.

LINCOLN, Neb. - After 14 practices, Nebraska redshirt freshman A.J. Bush has likely made the most progress from point A to point B at the quarterback position, as he tries to dethrone Tommy Armstrong as the starter this fall.

He will get a huge opportunity on Saturday during the Red-White game, where the quarterbacks will likely be live.

Talking to the Nebraska media for the first time during his career, the former Georgia prep state champion quarterback says he knows he's been a huge storyline this spring among Husker fans. He's trying to block it out.

"That can drastically change real quick," said Bush. "I'm trying to stay consistent, because I know I got off to a good start. I just want to stay that way. Coming into Saturday, I want to keep playing right and within the system, making plays."
