Lee in for Martinez, struggles early

By David Ubben

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Taylor Martinez took a hard shot to his lower body late in the first half, but came back on the field to finish the half.

Bo Pelini made the switch to Zac Lee for the second, but a rough start for Lee has the Huskers fans a little nervous early in the second half.

He overthrew a deep ball on his first attempt, which was nearly intercepted by a pair of Tigers. Penalties dug the Huskers in a deep hole on third down, but he overthrew another short pass to send the Huskers to a three-and-out.

Lee played well in relief of Martinez against Texas, but he hasn't looked like he did in that game -- his first action since the season opener -- today.
