Biggest Weakness: Inconsistent passing offense
Junior dual-threat quarterback Taylor Martinez deserves a lot of credit for improving his throwing mechanics and footwork over the offseason, which has made him a more accurate passer, but the Nebraska Cornhuskers have been inconsistent through the air this season.
Martinez has only thrown for more than 200 yards in four games this year, and the Cornhuskers were beaten handily by the Ohio State Buckeyes in one of those contests.
The good news for the Cornhuskers, though, is that sophomore I-back Ameer Abdullah is running harder than ever with over 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns to his name.
Martinez has been electrifying on the ground as well for Nebraska. The Corona, Calif. product has rushed for 792 yards and eight touchdowns on 140 carries, including a 205-yard effort against the Michigan State Spartans.
The Cornhuskers check in at No. 76 among all Football Bowl Subdivision programs in passing offense.
