McCaffrey split time with Adrian Martinez as the starting quarterback during the 2020 season and appeared in seven of Nebraska’s eight games during the 2020 season. He completed 48-of-76 pass attempts for 466 yards and a touchdown but tossed 6 interceptions. He proved to be effective in the run game, piling up 364 yards and 3 touchdowns on 65 carries.
In 2019, McCaffrey added 166 yards and a touchdown on the ground while completing 9-of-12 passes for 142 yards and a pair of scores without a pick.
McCaffrey was a redshirt freshman during the 2020 season, but with the NCAA’s blanket waiver for all student-athletes he’ll still have four years of eligibility remaining.
Both Luke and his brother, Dylan, entered the NCAA transfer portal during the offseason. Dylan announced that he’s transferring to Northern Colorado (FCS) to finish his college career playing for his father. He spent four seasons at Michigan.
