August 27, 2018

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — True freshman Adrian Martinez will be the starting quarterback when Nebraska begins the Scott Frost era against Akron on Saturday night.

However, the identity of Martinez’s backup was unknown.

Tristan Gebbia, who lost a close competition against Martinez, didn’t practice Monday morning. Frost indicated at his afternoon news conference the redshirt freshman was deciding whether to remain on the team. Frost said he hopes Gebbia stays but if he doesn’t, sophomore walk-on Andrew Bunch would be the top backup.
