Taylor Martinez will start for Huskers
Martinez sprained his right ankle in the Cornhuskers' (No. 7 BCS, No. 9 AP) game against Missouri last week and was on the sideline for the second half. He missed practice Monday.
Watson said there's no swelling in Martinez's ankle and that the freshman's workload will increase at Wednesday's practice.
Watson said he was impressed with Martinez's ability to bounce back, calling him "Superman."
