Green gets start at quarterback for Nebraska

Nebraska is turning to a new quarterback in hopes of breaking out of its offensive doldrums.

Freshman Cody Green replaced incumbent Zac Lee and made his first career start at quarterback for the Cornhuskers against Baylor on Saturday.

Coach Bo Pelini promised changes on offense after the Huskers scored a combined 17 points in consecutive home losses to Texas Tech and Iowa State.

Lee, a junior, started the first seven games, throwing for 1,466 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Green had thrown for two touchdowns and ran for two other scores in four games off the bench. The freshman is from Dayton, Texas, which is just outside of Houston and about 200 miles southeast of Waco.
