Nebraska's Adrian Martinez sets program's all-time mark during loss to Wisconsin
Nebraska has seen many big-time and long-serving playmakers on the offensive side of the ball. Junior quarterback Adrian Martinez just added his name as one of the most productive offensive players in program history.
Early in the fourth quarter, Martinez became the program’s all-time leader in total offensive yards accounted for (10,693) in the 35-28 road loss to No. 15 Wisconsin.
Congrats to @MartinezTheQB ! 🎈

Unfortunately, the game vs. the Badgers would ultimately end on an incomplete pass on 4th down as Nebraska came up just short once again.
Martinez has been a four-year starter for Nebraska as a dual-threat playmaker. Before the game against Wisconsin, Martinez accumulated 8,144 passing yards and 2,265 rushing yards. Against Wisconsin, Martinez threw for 23-of-35 completions for 351 yards, 1 touchdown, and 2 interceptions. He also rushed for 23 yards and a touchdown on nine carries.
He has a chance to add his record in the final game of the season next weekend as the Huskers host No. 17 Iowa.
