LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. knows expectations for him will be higher this season.
Armstrong had never taken a meaningful snap when he was thrust into the starter's job after Taylor Martinez was injured last year. Armstrong helped the Cornhuskers to a nine-win season that ended with a bowl victory over Georgia.
Armstrong says he feels more like a leader now.
Ameer Abdullah, the nation's top returning rusher, remains the top offensive threat for seventh-year coach Bo Pelini.
The Huskers are playing in the new Big Ten West Division. They're looking for their first conference title since 1999.
Their opener is Aug. 30 at home against Florida Atlantic.
