Nebraska junior quarterback Tommy Armstrong was named to the Manning Award Watch list on Thursday. The biggest question surrounding the junior is can he take the next step this season.
Through 21 starts, Armstrong has been an average college quarterback. If the Huskers want to go from an above average team to a conference championship contender, Armstrong will need to improve.
Nebraska fans hope new offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf can help the process. The former Oregon State coordinator has worked with multiple college quarterbacks who went on to the NFL. Langsdorf also was New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning's position coach last season in the NFL.
