Nebraska Football: Samori Toure is legitimate offensive threat

There were certainly many good things about the Nebraska football game on Saturday. One of them was the play of wide receiver Samori Toure.

He caught two passes for 136 yards and two touchdowns. That is a staggering 68 yards per reception. Whenever Nebraska football needed a big play, it always seemed like he was there to assist.

For the second week in a row, the wide receiver showed that he could be an explosive weapon. Although he only caught two passes, he had his fingerprints all over this game. Martinez threw in his direction several times. It’s becoming very clear that Toure is a favorite target for Martinez, and who could blame the quarterback?

Toure is becoming a big weapon in the Big Ten. He is becoming a bona fide star in this Nebraska football offense, and he is becoming somebody that Martinez can count on. The wide receiver’s emergence is key, especially as Nebraska football begins to enter the conference schedule. They are going to need to have big-play weapons, and Toure is definitely one of them.

Big playmaker for Nebraska football

On the year, he has 13 catches for 306 yards and two touchdowns. Perhaps the most staggering of all his numbers is that he is averaging 23.5 yards per reception. Toure is a downfield threat, and he is somebody who can make the big play.

It’s getting to the point where I almost expect a big game out of him. He has that type of capability, and he has shown it so far.

What will he do for an encore next week against Oklahoma? Oklahoma is undoubtedly going to be a difficult contest, so I don’t expect him to put up major numbers. That doesn’t mean that he won’t, but I feel like the entire Nebraska football program is going to have a difficult time.

Between his route-running, big-play capability, and his speed, Toure is becoming a big weapon in the Big Ten. This is exactly what Nebraska football probably envisioned when they grabbed him from the transfer portal. He is becoming must-see TV every Saturday. I’ll be interested to see what his final numbers are once the season ends. If he keeps this up, he may see himself at several awards ceremonies at the end of the year.
