Nebraska’s Tommy Armstrong Jr. breaks Taylor Martinez’s all-time touchdown pass record
Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. is looking to pencil himself into the Nebraska record books.
Up 24-10 against Wyoming, Armstrong Jr. threw a 34-yard touchdown pass to Huskers wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp which tied him with the all-time Nebraska record for career touchdown passes.
That's career TD pass No. 56 for @Tommy_Gun4 which ties Taylor Martinez for most on Nebraska charts.

Armstrong Jr. would break that record in the fourth quarter on a 9-yard touchdown toss to Westerkamp, as the Huskers are pulling away from Wyoming.
Tommy Armstrong owns that TD passing record for himself now with 57. Hits Jordan Westerkamp on a 9-yard throw. NU leads 45-17. #Huskers

Armstrong Jr. already owns a few Nebraska records, such as the longest touchdown pass in Huskers history on a 99-yard bomb to then-Nebraska receiver Quincy Enunwa in the 2014 Gator Bowl.
