Nebraska fans call for Luke McCaffrey to be new starting QB after Northwestern loss
Nebraska’s offense struggled mightily on Saturday in a 21-13 loss to Northwestern.
First it was incumbent starter Adrian Martinez. He was able to move the ball on the ground, but not with his arm. Northwestern’s secondary held him to 12-of-27 passing for 125 yards a bad interception that got him pulled from the game after halftime.
Luke McCaffrey was his replacement. He didn’t fare much better on the scoreboard, but he was more accurate. He finished 12-of-16 for 93 yards and a red zone interception.
Despite the lack of scoring from McCaffrey, Nebraska did march down the field twice in the four quarter with him under center.
Husker fans have spoken: they want McCaffrey to replace Martinez in Nebraska’s next game. The Huskers host Penn State next week.
Here’s some of the reaction to Martinez’s performance and the QB situation in Lincoln:
Week 3 Changes
– Luke McCaffrey in at starting QB.
– Revamp the WRs. Fleming Betts, Robinson. and Brown need to start.
– Figure out the OLine penalties.

My opinion doesn’t matter, but dang proud of the huskers and Luke McCaffrey. Can see huge progress from last year. Don’t think we are too far away from being great! I enjoy watching every game when we fight till the end. #GBR

100% on Frost. Should have been Luke the entire time.

Time to start McCaffrey. And Frost needs to give up play calling.

Scott is a joke of a coach. And if y’all start Adrian next week you are dumb as hell
