The Nebraska Cornhuskers will face a diverse lineup of quarterbacks in 2022. First, the Huskers will be breaking in a new starting quarterback in former Texas signal-caller Casey Thompson. And Nebraska is not alone in using a transfer quarterback. The transfer quarterback was a rarity in college football but not any longer. Four of the twelve quarterbacks Nebraska will face in 2022 are first-year transfers. And if you take a deeper look at the roster of QBs, six of the 12 quarterbacks the Cornhuskers will face in 2022 are transfers not at their original school of commitment.

The transfer rules in college football will likely change in some way, shape, or form in the near future. What those new rules will look like and how they curb the recent wave of transfers in college football is unknown. But be prepared as the college football world will be undergoing more changes after 2022.

Take a look below at the 12 projected starting quarterbacks Nebraska will face this upcoming season. The list includes old faces and new, as well as a former Husker who will get a rematch against his old team. So get ready, the season opener is less than 60-days away.
