Nebraska vs. Minnesota Game Preview
Kaliakmanis time: After six seasons at Minnesota, including five as the full-time or part-time starter, quarterback Tanner Morgan is out of eligibility. That means it’s time for Athan Kaliakmanis to shine. The redshirt sophomore, nicknamed the “Greek Rifle,” completed 60 of 111 passes for 946 yards with three touchdowns and four interceptions last season while thrust into action against some of the stingier defenses on Minnesota’s schedule. A former four-star prospect, Kaliakmanis has drawn great reviews from Fleck and is expected to raise the ceiling at quarterback for Minnesota as he gets acclimated to the full-time starting role.
Sims gets the spotlight: Nebraska quarterback Jeff Sims will have another chance to shine after three up-and-down seasons with Georgia Tech. Sims burst onto the scene as a freshman in 2020, showing promise for a downtrodden program. But injuries and competition at the position kept Sims from maximizing his potential the past two seasons. Entering 2023, however, he’s healthy, experienced and the unquestioned starter after incumbent Casey Thompson transferred to FAU following spring practice. With two seasons of eligibility remaining, Sims has the chance to become the quarterback who leads Nebraska back to respectability as Rhule’s tenure begins.
New offensive systems: Minnesota co-offensive coordinators Matt Simon and Greg Harbaugh aren’t new hires, but they will have increased responsibilities following the departure of Kirk Ciarrocca for Rutgers. Simon has been on staff since 2017 and Harbaugh is in his third stint on staff under Fleck. They both saw the offense peak in 2019 under Ciarrocca during an 11-2 season and will be tasked with charting a path forward following the departure of workhorse running back Mo Ibrahim, who holds numerous school records. First-year Nebraska offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield is a longtime associate of Rhule’s, dating back to a stint on staff at Western Carolina together in 2005. But he must prove he’s the right man for the job after presiding over a South Carolina offense that struggled to run the football the past two seasons.
