Nebraska has gone 5-0 with QB Tommy Armstrong Jr. starting for the injured Taylor Martinez.

It appears as if Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez's college career is over.

Martinez has played in just four games this season because of a variety of injuries. Monday, when asked about the possibility of Martinez playing again this season, Huskers coach Bo Pelini said, "I don't know if the chances are real good."

Week 11: Things we learned
From AJ McCarron being tabbed the nation's most underrated player to Auburn's Nick Marshall outrunning Johnny Manziel, here are the lessons we learned from Week 11. More ...

A foot injury -- specifically, to two toes on his left foot -- has been the toughest to shake, Pelini said.

Martinez, who was a four-year starter after redshirting as a true freshman, will leave with career school records for total offense (10,233 yards), passing yards (7,458) and touchdown passes (56).

Redshirt freshman Tommy Armstrong Jr. has started five games in Martinez's place, and the Huskers (7-2) are 5-0 in those starts.

Nebraska plays host to Michigan State on Saturday; the Huskers never have lost to the Spartans (7-0). The winner becomes the Legends Division frontrunner.
