On his first drive as a starter in 2020, Luke McCaffrey led Nebraska to the end zone
After Nebraska announced that Adrian Martinez was the projected quarterback starter, head coach Scott Frost decided against it and started Luke McCaffrey instead.
It’s already been a great call as the Cornhuskers marched 69 yards and got the game’s opening touchdown:

The touchdown came on a quarterback sneak inside the five-yard line to give the Cornhuskers an early 7-0 lead over Penn State. McCaffrey completed 4-of-5 passes for 45 yards and rushed the ball 3 times for 24 yards on the opening possession.
It was capped with a 1-yard touchdown run by McCaffrey. It was his first drive as a starter for the Huskers.
We’ll have to see how the Cornhusker offense looks for the rest of the game but this is exactly the start they needed with a new quarterback.
The game is currently being televised on FS1.
