Nebraska’s Tommy Armstrong becomes school’s passing leader

Last week, Nebraska Cornhuskers’ quarterback Tommy Armstrong made history as the school’s all-time leader in passing touchdowns. This week, Armstrong once again etched his name in the Nebraska record books as the all-time leader in passing yards.

The veteran signal caller set the mark in the first half of the Cornhuskers’ matchup against the Oregon Ducks, once again passing Taylor Martinez to now lead in both passing touchdowns and passing yards for the school. The senior quarterback is continuing a season that has featured plenty of early milestones so far.

He has been a starter for all four seasons at Nebraska, eventually winning the job during his freshman season in 2013 before never looking back. The four-year starter properly used his early success at the helm to ultimately become the all-time record holder in two major statistical categories for the Cornhuskers.

While the wins haven’t matched Armstrong’s statistical hold of the Nebraska record books, there is no denying that the quarterback isn’t one of the best to ever play at the school. Win or lose, Saturday will serve as a memorable moment as Armstrong will spend the rest of his career rewriting the record books in Lincoln as the reward for becoming a four-year starter for the Cornhuskers.

Despite their quarterback reaching the aforementioned milestone early on in the game, the Cornhuskers currently trail the Ducks by the score of 20-14 through the first two quarters of action. Both teams also notably entered the weekend contest with matching 2-0 records.
