Sophomore Andrew Bunch returns for his second season in the Nebraska program in 2018. The 6-1, 210-pound Bunch provided depth at quarterback in 2017, but did not see any game action. Bunch had a strong spring in the Huskers’ new offensive scheme and is poised to contend for playing time this fall, joining a competition that also includes freshmen Tristan Gebbia and Adrian Martinez.
A walk-on, Bunch joined the Nebraska program in January of 2017 after spending one season at Scottsdale Community College.
Bunch served as Nebraska’s No. 3 quarterback in 2017. Although he did not appear in a game, he was on the travel roster for the Huskers’ trips to Purdue, Minnesota and Penn State.
