Nebraska backup QB Andrew Bunch exploring transfer

December 15, 2018

Nebraska quarterback Andrew Bunch has a place on NU’s 2019 team if he wants it, but he’s also exploring a potential transfer in search of playing time, a Nebraska football spokesman confirmed.

Bunch, a walk-on from Thompson’s Station, Tennessee, met with head coach Scott Frost recently and “felt it necessary,” a spokesman said, to look at transfer spots. Nebraska is supporting his decision to look around while welcoming him back to the team for next season if he wants to be a part of it.

“Andrew knows that we certainly would like to have him back next year,” the spokesman said. “He is a competitor, and we are a better team with him.”

Bunch started one game for the Huskers this season - a 24-19 loss to Troy - and was NU’s primary backup in losses to Colorado and Michigan and a win over Illinois. He threw for 320 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. He also ran for 40 yards.

Other candidates to back up starter Adrian Martinez include Noah Vedral and incoming freshman Luke McCaffrey, who will sign with the Huskers Dec. 19.
