Nebraska's Brenden Jaimes breaks program record for most consecutive starts
In a season that’s been a bit disappointing for Nebraska, this is quite the achievement.
Nebraska OL Brenden Jaimes started his 39th consecutive game for the Huskers on Saturday against Purdue, breaking the program record for most starts by an offensive lineman.

Jaimes has started all but three games in his collegiate career. He made his first start as a true freshman on Sept. 23, 2017 against Rutgers and never looked back.
Nebraska is searching for its second win of the season on Saturday vs. Purdue. The Huskers have lost two straight since picking up a win over Penn State on Nov. 14.
If the Huskers won’t win their final three games — including their contest on Championship Weekend — they will be under .500 for the fourth straight season.
Nebraska will end its regular season next week against Minnesota.
