Nebraska head coach Scott Frost said in his weekly press conference on Monday that Nebraska had sent the tape to the Pac-12 and B1G to be reviewed after seeing a certain angle of the play.
“I will tell you that we have an angle that doesn’t look very good,” Frost said. “So, we’ve turned the play into the B1G and Pac-12 and we’ll see where it goes from there.”
Martinez was injured in the 4th quarter, leaving the game and didn’t return. Frost did say that Martinez’s status is day-to-day and he could potentially play next Saturday against Troy.
In his debut as Nebraska’s starting quarterback, Martinez threw for 187 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 117 yards and two scores. The Huskers lost to Colorado 33-28.
