Nebraska QB Tommy Armstrong Jr. amasses 378 total yards at Northwestern to earn Uplifting Athletes Player of the Week


NCAA FOOTBALL: NOV 27 Iowa at Nebraska

What a difference a year makes for the Nebraska Cornhuskers program. One year ago head coach Mike Riley’s team was 2-2 after four games and headed for a 6-7 season that included a bowl victory.

Nebraska is 4-0 to start this season after a solid road victory at Northwestern over the weekend. And QB Tommy Armstrong Jr. has played a big role for the No. 15 ranked Huskers.

The Uplifting Athletes Player of the Week had a monster game against the Wildcats, throwing for 246 yards and a touchdown with an interception. He also rushed for a career high 132 yards on 13 carries to account for 378 yards of total offense

Armstrong is an explosive dual threat and always has been. Ball security was the issue holding him back from being an elite Big Ten quarterback. This year through four games the senior has thrown eight touchdowns and only one interception. Last year he threw 22 touchdowns, but also had 16 picks.

This week the Huskers host Illinois at Memorial Stadium for the Uplifting Athletes Awareness Game. Kickoff is 3:30 EST.

Week 1: QB DeShone Kizer, Notre Dame

Week 2: QB Jake Browning, Washington
