During Nebraska’s 2010 fall camp, the race for the starting quarterback job was narrowed down to three names: Zac Lee, Cody Green and Taylor Martinez.
Head coach Bo Pelini was tight-lipped regarding who would be under center for the Cornhuskers' opening tilt.
Lee was thought to be the odds-on favorite with Green nipping at his heels.
The Cornhusker fan base was shocked to see the redshirt freshman Martinez take the reins against Western Kentucky.
Entering Nebraska’s inaugural season as a member of the Big Ten conference, the field has expanded to five potential starting signal-callers.
There is no lip service this year.
The race is wide open and while any one of these young men could hold the keys to the Big Red’s offense, only one gets the title of “starter.”
