Huskers go (Cody) Green
By David Ubben
Nebraska's quarterback carousel made another stop on Saturday, with Cody Green making his first start of the season in Nebraska's game in Ames against Iowa State.
Taylor Martinez has started every other game this season, but Zac Lee has gotten substantial time after an injury to Martinez last week and the freshman getting benched against Texas.
Green has played only sparingly, but had been given a series sporadically earlier in the year.
Both Lee and Martinez are dressed for the game, but Martinez was limited in practice this week. He also sat out Monday's practice with what coach Bo Pelini said was a sprained ankle on Monday.
Winds are high in Ames on Saturday, so with the quarterback uncertainty, look for plenty of touches for running backs Rex Burkhead and Roy Helu Jr. Burkhead, a former high school quarterback, should see some time in the Wildcat, too.
