Nebraska QB Tommy Armstrong will start vs. Iowa
Nebraska will have its starting quarterback against Iowa.
That much we know after the senior went through warmups and was deemed OK to play in Friday’s showdown in Iowa City.
Tommy Armstrong will start for Nebraska. Hawkeyes hoping for 2015 Tommy, not 2014 second-half Tommy.

Armstrong missed the Maryland game with hamstring and ankle injuries. The Nebraska senior led the Huskers on a game-winning drive against Minnesota two weeks ago. He was carried off the field by teammates after his go-ahead score.
Iowa will look to have similar success as last year against the Husker signal-caller. The Hawkeyes picked off Armstrong four times in 2015, and held on to clinch a perfect 12-0 regular season.
Kickoff was pushed back to 2:41 p.m. CT.
