Nebraska will be without starting quarterback Casey Thompson against Michigan this Saturday.

The Cornhuskers QB has been a bright spot on an otherwise rough season. Head coach Mickey Joseph did not name a starter for this weekend.

Thompson suffered an arm injury in Week 9’s loss to Illinois. Logan Smothers and Chubba Purdy played in Nebraska’s 20-13 loss to Minnesota.

And Joseph said Thursday that the Huskers have a simple plan for this weekend against the top 5 Wolverines despite not naming a starting QB.

This one could get ugly.
