Nebraska football is the No. 1 topic in Big Red Rising every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Huskers sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Huskers football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Huskers land QB

The good news just keeps on coming for coach Scott Frost and his Nebraska staff. On Wednesday, that was the commitment of 4-stat quarterback Adrian Martinez. Frost and quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco actually already knew the news, though. Martinez informed them both Tuesday evening.

Speaking of that Tuesday night visit, the cross country flight definitely paid off big time for Frost and Verduzco.

Walk-on Wednesday

Nebraska hosted an invite-only walk-on event Wednesday evening, and it sounds like it was a big success. For preferred walk-on commit Ryan Schommer, it was everything he hoped it would be and more.

Peach Bowl prep

Frost is busy making cross country flights to balance Central Florida’s Peach Bowl prep with recruiting for Nebraska. Should he be doing that, though? One former Nebraska assistant has mixed emotions on the whole deal.

As for one Oregon writer, he sees how Frost is handling his situation and how Willie Taggart handled his with Oregon to be a contrast of character.

Schedule update

Mark your calendars, Huskers fans. Nebraska has added 6 games to future football schedules.

Best of the Big Ten

Athlon Sports put together their list of the 15 best Big Ten football games in 2017. Nebraska did make the list at No. 5 with their 25-24 win on Oct. 28 at Purdue.

Game day

Nebraska volleyball faces Penn State at 7 p.m. ET Thursday in the NCAA Final Four. The team had a chance to enjoy some time together Wednesday evening, including posing for a few “family Christmas photos.”

Oversleep and miss a recent Big Red Rising? No worries. We have all our past editions here.
