During today's Big 12 teleconference, Nebraska Head Coach Bill Callahan announced that junior right guard Andy Christensen would be out for the season following an injury suffered against USC.

During today’s Big 12 Teleconference, Head Coach Bill Callahan announced that senior starting left guard Andy Christensen would be out for the season, following a knee injury suffered during the 49-31 loss to the USC Trojans.

Christensen went into this year with high hopes and a lot of experience in the “West Coast” offense, the 6-2, 305 lbs. guard having played in all 14 games last season, starting six of the final eight. Over his career Christensen has 10 starts to his name.

Listed second behind Christensen at the left guard spot is senior Jordan Picou. Other players who could see time there are redshirt freshman Keith Williams, currently listed second string at right guard, sophomore Jacob Hickman, currently listed second string at center and junior guard Mike Huff, who has been serving some duties at right guard, but is the most experienced lineman coming off the bench, Huff starting 15 games over his career.

This marks the second season-ending injury for Christensen. In 2005 Christensen suffered a shoulder injury during fall camp. The surgery on that injury kept him out for the entire season. Other Notes: Senior Zack Bowman also went down against USC, but when asked about his status, Coach Callahan said Bowman was OK "as far as I know."
