The Huskers pass an important test on the road this weekend against the undefeated Minnesota Golden Gophers. This task may become much more difficult if quarterback Adrian Martinez is not ready to leave with his knee injury.
Starting Thursday, it seems that Martinez's status is still in the air.
Speaking to media, Nebraska's head coach, Scott Frost, revealed that Martinez would travel to Minneapolis. But beyond that, he would not want to say if Martine would start.
In fact, four of Nebraska's available quarterbacks – Martinez, second student Noah Vedral, rookie Luke McCaffrey and junior Andrew Bunch – are about to make the trip.
Frost says Martinez will make the trip with Vedral, McCaffrey and Andrew Bunch. I would not have read that much in Martinez's status.

Frost claimed the injury was not serious, but his silence on Martinez's status is very interesting.
Martinez is currently finishing 60.3% of his passes at 8.5 yards per attempt. But he is about to make fewer more touchdowns and interceptions than in his freshman year.
Beating a 5-0 Minnesota team already favored in the game will only get harder if the starting quarterback does not have enough reps before.
The game will be played at 19:30. EST and will be broadcast on FS1.
