‘I’m ready to play them’: Myles Farmer missed last season’s Purdue game. Now, he’s ready to shine

It’s come full circle for Myles Farmer.

Saturday’s game against Purdue won’t be the redshirt freshman safety’s first start, nor his first time playing significant snaps for Nebraska’s defense.

But after seeing his season end last year thanks to a freak injury on the Boilermakers’ home field, Farmer is now in line to be the starting safety Saturday opposite Marquel Dismuke when the Blackshirts take the field against the Boilermakers at Memorial Stadium.

“It’s been a process,” Farmer said Tuesday. “But my ankle’s strong now and I feel better than ever. I’m ready to play them. I didn’t get to play them back then, but I get that now.”
