Freshman QB Martinez effective in guiding Reds’ offense

After falling behind 14-3, the Whites scored 13 unanswered points, but Kody Spano’s one-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Hill with 7:28 left gave the Reds a 21-16 victory in the 2010 Nebraska football spring game.

Taylor Martinez connected on 5-of-9 passes for 79 yards in the first half and rushed nine times for 60 yards to help the Reds jump to a 14-3 lead early in the second quarter. Martinez was effective from the start, engineering a 10-play, 52-yard touchdown drive on the opening possession.

Two of Martinez’s completions went for touchdowns, including a 36-yarder to wide receiver Brandon Kinnie that put the Reds up 11 points with 9:52 left in the first half. Kinnie drew contact from the Whites near the 10-yard line but drove the pile into the end zone to cap an eight-play, 72-yard drive.

I-back Rex Burkhead also helped the Reds on their successful early drives, carrying six times for 36 yards.

Commentary

The curtain finally went up on No. 3 at the Red-White game, and he opened eyes with his speed.

Players dazzle in the Spring Game and vanish come fall. I don’t see that happening in Martinez’s case

Lincoln Journal Star

The Huskers definitely had the look of a more physical football team. That’s something they’ve been working toward for quite some time.

Suh's absence was noticeable, and has to be the single biggest question mark between now and kickoff in September.

Martinez is a weapon. No doubt. But is he the side dish? Or the whole side of Big Red beef?

With the 2010 spring game in the record books, Nebraskans can now relax and forget about football until sometime tomorrow afternoon
