LINCOLN — Purdue just pulled quarterback Danny Etling out of a potential redshirt season in its last game, so Nebraska doesn't know much about the freshman heading into his first career start Saturday.
The only snaps Etling has taken came against Northern Illinois on Sept. 28 before the Boilermakers headed into a bye week, but NU defensive coordinator John Papuchis did take note that Purdue mainly ran dropback plays when they called passes for the 6-foot-3, 215-pounder from Terre Haute, Ind.
