Nebraska expected to have QB Tommy Armstrong for season finale

Nebraska could receive a much needed boost this week as they wrap up their season.

Starting quarterback Tommy Armstrong, who missed last weeks game against Maryland with a hamstring injury, is expected to play in the season finale.

This is a much needed and welcomed boost for a Nebraska team that will travel to Kinnick Stadium to play a deceptively talented Iowa team.

Armstrong has been taking a beating lately but appears eager to get back out on the field. After suffering what initially appeared to be a very serious head injury against Ohio State, he pulled up with a hamstring injury against Minnesota which caused him to miss his first action of the season.

Armstrong is the engine that keeps the Nebraska offense moving. His arm is so that you can’t cheat up on him, but his legs have accounted for 499 yards and 8 touchdowns in their own right this season.

Ryker Fife did a good job last week against Maryland, but Iowa is a much better squad and the Cornhuskers will need Armstrong under center if they expect to win this game.

Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
