On Saturday (November 10), the Nebraska football team's offense certainly showed up to play. Led, once again, by dynamic young quarterback Adrian Martinez, the Huskers unleashed an offensive output. The end result was a lopsided victory against the visiting Illinois Fighting Illini. In addition, it resulted in Martinez and the Nebraska football program achieving some new history for the school record books. With a few more games to go, it has fans excited for the future as well.

Adrian Martinez breaks QB record

Ahead of today's Nebraska vs Illinois game, Adrian Martinez ranked second in the nation in terms of total offense by a freshman.

The Cornhuskers quarterback recorded guided his squad to a whopping 54-35 win in Lincoln, against the Fighting Illini. In particular, Martinez reached 2,598 yards of total offense as a freshman to surpass the previous record.

For Saturday's Nebraska Cornhuskers' victory, Martinez completed 24-of-34 passes for 290 yards and three touchdowns. He was also mobile, like usual, with 13 carries for 55 yards and a rushing touchdown.

He now owns the school record with two games left to play. Those will be against ranked Big Ten foes Michigan State and Iowa.

Nebraska reaches offensive milestones

Prior to this game, there was also talk of the Cornhuskers closing in on a major offensive milestone. They tied several other teams from Nebraska football history when they put up 450 yards of offense against Ohio State.

While that game was a loss, it was the sixth consecutive game in which they'd achieved 450 yards of offense or more.

Saturday's game was much more. With 290 passing yards from Adrian Martinez, and then another 316 yards on the ground from the offense, the Huskers finished with a total of 606. That gives this year's team the sole possession of that milestone in the school's history books.

There was another record set today as well. Nebraska's 54 points on the scoreboard are the most in school history for a Big Ten game. For a team that now sits at 3-7, they're starting to look like a football team with a much better record than what shows on paper.

As mentioned, they still have two more football games in which to extend these records. Next up, they'll take on the No. 18 Michigan State Spartans, next Saturday, with the time "to be determined." They'll cap off their season visiting the No. 21 Iowa Hawkeyes for a 12 PM game on Friday, November 23.

Based on today's Nebraska Cornhuskers' performance, it's not out of question to believe this team has the ability to get at least one upset out of the next two games. Make it two more wins, and Nebraska fans could be having some serious Nebraska bowl game eligibility discussions.
