2019 (Senior)
A Ray Guy Award nominee, Isaac Armstrong served as Nebraska's starting punter as a senior, while also serving in a limited role as the Huskers' place-kicker and kickoff specialist. Armstrong averaged 40.9 yards per punt and placed 23 of his 59 punts inside the 20-yard line. He excelled at limiting the opponent punt return game, allowing only 25 return yards on 59 punts in 2019 and just 26 return yards in 91 career punts.

Armstrong averaged 45.5 yards per punt on six punts in the season opener against South Alabama. He had a career-high three punts downed inside the 20-yard line and tied his career high with a pair of 50-yard punts. At Colorado, Armstrong averaged 46.2 yards per punt, and he also handled the Huskers' place-kicking duties, making all four of his extra-point attempts and connecting on a 26-yard field goal in his first career attempt. Against Northern Illinois, Armstrong averaged 45.3 yards per punt and placed all three of his punts inside the 20-yard line while adding his first tackle of the season. At Illinois, Armstrong averaged 46.5 yards per punt, including a season-long 58-yard punt. He punted a career-high 10 times against Northwestern and tied his career highs with two 50-yard punts and three punts inside the 20-yard line. Armstrong also pinned Minnesota inside its own 20-yard line three times the next week, and he had three punts downed inside the 20 at Purdue. At Maryland, Armstrong pinned the Terrapins inside the 10-yard line on both of his punts, averaging a season-high 53.0 yards per punt. He had a season-long 60-yard punt at Maryland and recorded his second tackle of the season on kickoff coverage, as he kicked off 10 times against the Terrapins. Armstrong also had one kickoff against Northern Illinois and handled four kickoffs at Purdue.

Armstrong finished his career ranked eighth in Nebraska history with a career punting average of 41.84 yards.

2018 (Junior)
Armstrong was the holder for all 12 games and was the starting punter in the final seven games, earning honorable-mention All-Big Ten honors. He averaged 43.6 yards per punt, the second-best mark in the Big Ten and the ninth-highest average in NU history. Armstrong pinned the opponent inside the 20-yard line nine times, had seven punts of 50 yards or longer and only seven of his 32 punts were returned, including two fumbles.

Armstrong punted twice at No. 16 Wisconsin, booming a 59-yarder on his first career punt and then pinning UW inside the 15-yard line with a 49-yard punt. He averaged 45.8 yards on five punts at Northwestern and pinned the Wildcats inside the 10-yard line twice. Armstrong averaged 57.3 yards per punt against Bethune-Cookman, just shy of the school record (57.6), including a career-long 73-yard punt, the seventh-longest punt in NU history. Two of his four punts against Illinois were fumbled resulting in takeaways. Armstrong pinned Michigan State inside the 20-yard line twice on five punts in a 9-6 win where field position was key.

2017 (Sophomore)
Armstrong served as Nebraska’s No. 2 punter and holder as a sophomore. Although he did not record a punt, Armstrong was on Nebraska’s travel roster all season. He served as the Huskers’ starting holder against Purdue, Northwestern and Minnesota, helping Drew Brown make 5-of-5 field goal attempts and 7-of-7 PAT tries.

2016 (Redshirt Freshman)
Armstrong was Nebraska's No. 2 punter. He traveled to road games, but did not play and redshirted. 

2015 (Redshirt)
Armstrong was on campus for the 2015 season but was not a member of the football team. He joined the Huskers prior to the 2016 spring season.

Before Nebraska (Lincoln Southwest HS/Kearney HS)
Armstrong walked on at Nebraska after spending time as the place-kicker and punter for Lincoln Southwest. As a senior in 2014, Armstrong earned second-team Super-State accolades in helping the Silver Hawks to a state playoff berth. He also played for the soccer team at Southwest, earning first-team all-state honors in 2015. He scored 18 goals as a senior and eight goals during his junior campaign.
