Hat tip to the Husker Extra Podcast. Parker Gabriel brought up the question of who will have the best player on the field tomorrow — Colorado or Nebraska?

For those who don’t know Colorado has a player by the name of Laviska Shenault Jr. He is picked to go anywhere from the top 5 to the top 10 in the NFL draft as a wide receiver. Last year he torched Nebraska and is coming back for more.

Nebraska has Adrian Martinez. Prior to the season I think the answer is Adrian because of what we expected from him. However, after the South Alabama game I think the question is more difficult.

Thoughts?
