Lee Competing for Starting Job

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Zac Lee says he's planning to compete all the way through August to win the Nebraska starting quarterback's job.

Though he made just two mop-up appearances last season, he's the most experienced quarterback in the program and considered by many to be a lock to be the starter.

Offensive coordinator Shawn Watson says he can tell Lee is confident. But he also can tell Lee is humble and taking nothing for granted.

Lee passed for more than 3,400 yards and 35 touchdowns for San Francisco City College in 2006. But he says anything he did in high school or junior college is meaningless now that he's going against top Division I talent at Nebraska.

Nose tackle Ndamukong Suh says once Lee gets the offense down pat, he could be better than 2008 starter Joe Ganz.
