Perhaps you haven’t heard, but this Brion Carnes fellow is kind of a big deal.
The cousin of Cornhusker legend Tommie Frazier, Carnes was a four-year starter at Frazier’s former high school and showed shades of his relation's abilities during the Red-White game.
The offense seemed crisper with Carnes under center, he made his reads well and flowed with the pocket.
Not only that, Carnes went 11-of-15 passing amassing 173 yards through the air while throwing two touchdown passes.
He would add 49 yards rushing on nine attempts (seven YPC).
Carnes may not have effectively unseated Martinez as the No. 1 quarterback, but he definitely made the seat under last year’s starter much hotter.
