Decision on Huskers starting quarterback coming “very soon”

"The fact that it's a hard decision is a good situation," offensive coordinator Matt Lubick said.

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Nebraska is still without a starting quarterback, though that decision could be coming “very soon”, per offensive coordinator Matt Lubick.

“They both can win. They both can play,” Lubick said during a Zoom press conference on Thursday.

Lubick, head coach Scott Frost and quarterbacks’ coach Mario Verduzco continue to deliberate between incumbent starter Adrian Martinez and redshirt freshman Luke McCaffery. Though Lubick insists, both Martinez and McCaffrey give Nebraska a good chance to win. It’s just a matter of who gives the Huskers a better chance to win.

“The fact that it’s a hard decision is a good situation,” Lubick said.

The Huskers season opener at Ohio State is now less than 10 days away. Kickoff is set for 11:00 a.m. on Oct. 24.
