Nebraska at Texas A&M

Nebraska faces a big road test when it heads to Texas A&M in Week 12.

Nebraska offense vs. Texas A&M defense
• Cornhuskers QB Taylor Martinez should near 100 percent after dealing with an ankle injury last week, and that's good news for a Nebraska running game that struggled to find big plays last week against Kansas. Martinez has the vision and second gear to go the distance from anywhere on the field, and that threat alone makes RBs Roy Helu and Rex Burkhead better because Martinez becomes the main key for opposing defenses. It will be vital that Nebraska has all three runners at full capacity this week because the Aggies have been stingy against the run this season, and the Cornhuskers will have to make the most of any big-play opportunities they are presented.
