Injuries have derailed Nebraska’s 2013 season, none more so than the one to senior quarterback Taylor Martinez in the season-opener against Wyoming. While Martinez did play in three other games, he was never himself, and Nebraska’s offense struggled as a result.

But what if that injury never happened?
