A nice award on special teams!

NCAA Football: Nebraska at Iowa Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

Nebraska’s Connor Culp was chosen as the Bakken-Andersen Kicker of the Year by the Big Ten conference today. He was first team all-Big Ten as chosen by the coaches and media.

Culp has hit 13-of-15 field goals this season, and perfect on 16 PATs. He leads the conference in field goals per game with 1.9, and is second in field goal accuracy at 86.7 percent.

He hit a 49-yard field goal against Purdue, going 3-for-3 in that game. He went 3-for-3 against Penn State. Maybe if he goes 3-for-3 against Rugers, Nebraska can come away with a much-needed victory.

Notice also he beat out Keith Duncan from Iowa, who finished in third place, which is kind of like being last.

This is Culp’s first year with Nebraska after coming to our beloved Huskers as grad transfer from LSU.

In addition to Culp’s honor, senior linebacker Collin Miller was recognized as the Huskers’ Sportsmanship Award nominee for the 2020 season.
