2. Nebraska QB Tommy Armstrong Jr.

Armstrong is the dual threat driving force for the Cornhuskers’ offense, with 1,500 passing yards and 12 touchdowns (with six interceptions) and 206 rushing yards and two touchdowns so far this season.

After starting the season with at least 270 passing yards and multiple passing touchdowns in each of the first four games, including over 300 yards through the air three times, Armstrong has just 234 total passing yards over the last two games with one touchdown and one interception over that span.

Armstrong needs to get back on track on Saturday, or Nebraska will start their Big Ten schedule 0-3.
