Nebraska has not been known for its offense recently. The last two years have seen a terrible offense in 2009 and a good offense in 2010 that relied on quarterback Taylor Martinez's running ability and was ineffective after his injury.
This year, Nebraska promised us something new, though we have yet to see the new offense the coaches and players talked about. The offense still relies heavily on the running ability of Martinez and not much on anything else.
While the offense did what it needed to do against Fresno State, it has not lived up to its potential and needs to improve. The Cornhuskers have a tough test in Washington and will need to make some key adjustments in order to win this game.
