PFF snap counts and grades for Nebraska's offense vs. Purdue

Here are the final snap counts and grades for Nebraska's offense against Purdue, courtesy of PFF.

QUARTERBACK 

Quarterback grade out

Adrian Martinez - Jr.

69.1

HOL take: Three of Adrian Martinez's four interceptions on Saturday came while he was under pressure. Purdue only brought more than four on five of his 33 dropbacks - which continues to be a trend on obvious passing downs vs. Martinez.

NU averaged 7.9 yards in distance on third downs, despite averaging 9.3 yards on 30 first down snaps vs. Purdue. It's really one of the most bizarre stats I've ever seen.

Martinez had three scrambles for 13 yards on pass plays, and three designed runs for 11 yards.

Nine of Martinez's 29 passing attempts where throws that traveled 20+ yards.

HOL take: Nebraska's backs had just three runs of 10+ yards, with Jaquez Yant having two of them on the same drive - runs of 33 and 18 yards. NU got 112 yards from Yant and Rahmir Johnson on 19 carries.

There was just one pass thrown to a running back all day, and it was a late check down that went for 12 yards to Johnson.

HOL take: Zavier Betts led Nebraska in total wide receiver snaps played, but had just two targets his way the entire game.

Omar Manning, Oliver Martin and Alante Brown were three of NU's four highest-graded out players overall. Manning played one of his better all-around games on Saturday for NU.

It makes you wonder if Martin is still not 100 percent from his early-season knee injury. I was surprised to see such a low snap count from him.

HOL take: Tight end Austin Allen had Nebraska's best run-blocking grade of the day, and he was the third-highest graded out player on offense.

On the season, Allen is far and away Nebraska's highest-graded out player at 89.2. Allen had three catches on five targets for 28 yards vs. Purdue.

HOL take: Purdue defensive end George Karlaftis forced eight quarterback hurries, had one QB hit and a 6-yard tackle for loss. Overall Purdue's defense had 21 hurries, two quarterback hits and one sack on the day.

Nebraska's two starting tackles gave up 10 hurries and one sack.

What's interesting is the run blocking grades on Saturday were some of the better marks we've seen this season. Only the Northwestern and Oklahoma games had higher run-blocking grades.
