Nebraska's Taylor Martinez is set to break 2001 Heisman Trophy winner Eric Crouch's school career total offense record Saturday against Michigan State.
Only a junior, Martinez could finish his career as one of college football's most prolific quarterbacks ever. But Crouch said Martinez probably needs to win a championship of some kind before he can be judged as one of the Huskers' all-time great quarterbacks.
Martinez, who is 23-10 as a starter, has a chance this year. The 21st-ranked Huskers (6-2, 3-1) lead the Big Ten Legends Division going into the game with the Spartans (5-4, 2-3).
Quarterbacks most often mentioned as Nebraska's greatest are Tommie Frazier (1992-95), Jerry Tagge (1969-71), Turner Gill (1981-83), Scott Frost (1996-97) and Crouch (1998-2001).
