(Neb.)-Purdue to start freshman QB against Nebraska

By: Andrew Lacy Posted at: 10/11/2013 11:39 AM
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Darrell Hazell is shaking things up at Purdue.

The Boilermakers coach made a quarterback change, switched right guards and tinkered with his defensive lineup during the bye week. He's hoping it makes a difference Saturday against Nebraska (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten).

Little has gone right for Purdue (1-4, 0-1) this season. The offense is scoring a league low 17.0 points per game. The defense is giving up a league-high 36.6 points per game.

Hazell decided to give freshman quarterback Danny Etling a chance to jump start the season.

This week, he'll be facing a young Cornhuskers' defense that is ranked in the bottom half of the league in the major categories but has shown improvement the last two weeks.
