Tommy Armstrong Jr. will make his second straight start in place of the injured Taylor Martinez when Nebraska hosts Illinois in its Big Ten opener Saturday. Coach Bo Pelini said after Thursday's practice that Martinez hasn't progressed enough in his recovery from an injury to his left big toe. Armstrong, a redshirt freshman, and fifth-year senior Ron Kellogg III split playing time evenly in the Cornhuskers' 59-20 win over South Dakota State on Sept. 21.

Martinez hasn't played or practiced since the Sept. 14 game against UCLA.
