Cody Green starts for Taylor Martinez
Coach Bo Pelini indicated at midweek that Green probably would start, but it wasn't official until pregame introductions Friday.
Martinez has been bothered by a right ankle sprain since Oct. 30, and he injured a toe on his left foot last week against Texas A&M.
Green made his second start of the season and fourth of his career for the Cornhuskers, who need to beat Colorado to clinch the Big 12 North title.
