LINCOLN, Neb. -- Redshirt freshman Tommy Armstrong was announced to the crowd at Memorial Stadium as Nebraska's starting quarterback Saturday in the lead-up to kickoff against South Dakota State.
Martinez was not dressed in the pregame festivities Saturday. He has started 32 consecutive games, dating to his freshman year in 2010, and 43 in his record-setting career. His 2,959 career rushing yards rank as the most by an active player at the FBS level.
The 6-foot-1, 220-pound Armstrong, from Cibolo, Texas, made his collegiate debut two weeks ago in the Huskers' 56-13 win over Southern Miss. He rushed for 23 yards and did not attempt a pass.
