DE Avery Moss ruled out for Nebraska

Due to a reported “personal issue,” Cornhuskers defensive end Avery Moss will miss the TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl.

He has “previous issues” that he is currently dealing with that date back to last year. From ESPN,

Moss has a scheduled court date on Monday to answer public indecency charges from a December 2012 incident. He is accused of exposing himself to a convenience store worker in Lincoln.

Along with Moss, there are a few other players that won’t be playing in the Gator Bowl. For example, quarterback Taylor Martinez. According to cornnation.com,

It was also confirmed that Senior Quarterback Taylor Martinez will not play in the bowl game, officially ending his Nebraska career. Martinez’s last action was in the loss at Minnesota, but has been injured seemingly his entire season, depending on who you listen to.


With no Martinez, Nebraska will rely on Frosh QB Tommy Armstrong Jr. to start, as well as having Ron Kellogg III come in at points throughout the game.

How do you think Nebraska will do in the Gator Bowl against Georgia? Leave a comment below.
