Jared Crick put his name in the Nebraska record books following an impressive sophomore season last fall. The Cozad, Neb., native was a first-team All-Big 12 selection by the league’s coaches as he racked up 9.5 sacks and 75 total tackles. In Nebraska’s 20-10 win over Baylor on Oct. 31, Crick set the school’s single-game records for sacks (5) and tackles for loss (7). He was named the Bronko Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week following his dominant performance against the Bears.
Prince Amukamara had a breakout junior season in 2009, earning first-team All-Big 12 honors from the conference coaches and several major media outlets. The defensive back tallied five interceptions to rank second on the team, while leading the Huskers with 11 pass breakups. He also had 64 total tackles and a pair of sacks to help NU hold its opponents to a nation-leading 10.4 points per game.
Established in 1946, Nebraska has the most Outland Trophy winners of any college football program with nine. Suh is the lone Husker to win the Nagurski Trophy, an award that began in 1993.
