5 stars in Nebraska football vs Wisconsin game

The five players that stood out in the game between Nebraska and Wisconsin included Adrian Martinez


Adrian Martinez

The true freshman quarterback is growing up right before our very eyes. Against one of the best defenses in the Big Ten, Martinez threw for 384 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for 57 yards and another touchdown. Yes he made some mistakes, but he was involved in almost every yard of offense the Huskers gained on Saturday night.


Jonathan Taylor

It's safe to say the Badgers might not have won if they didn't have Taylor on their team. The running back went off for 221 yards and three touchdowns on 24 carries. That included an 88 yard galllop.


JD Spielman

Speaking of talented sophomores, JD Spielman had his second straight insane game. Against Wisconsin he hauled down nine passes for 209 yards and a touchdown. That broke a Nebraska football record that he set last year.


TJ Edwards

The Wisconsin defense has been a bit down this year but they still have some talent. That includes linebacker TJ Edwards who had himself a game Saturday night. Edwards had seven tackles, two for loss and two sacks.


Stanley Morgan

With an 0-5 start to the season, it's easy to forget Nebraska likely has two of the best receivers in the Big Ten. Both went off on Saturday. Spielman had the better of the two performances but Stanley Morgan added eight catches for 93 yards. He added some nifty moves on one catch in particular.
