Multiple Huskers earn All-Big Ten Honors
LINCOLN, Neb. (Press Release) - A pair of Nebraska football offensive playmakers received All-Big Ten honors on Wednesday for their effort in the 2022 season. Receiver Trey Palmer was a second-team All-Big Ten pick by the Big Ten media, and a third-team selection by the league coaches, while running back Anthony Grant was an honorable-mention choice on both teams.
Palmer had a record-setting 2022 season for the Huskers, finishing with a school-record 1,043 receiving yards. Palmer’s 71 receptions ranked second on Nebraska’s single-season charts and are the most ever by a Husker receiver. Palmer was the only player in the Big Ten to record three games with at least 150 receiving yards, including a school-record 237 yards at Purdue. Palmer’s nine touchdown receptions ranked in a tie for fifth on the Huskers’ single-season chart.
Grant paced the Nebraska rushing game in 2022. Grant finished the season with 915 yards and six rushing touchdowns. His five 100-yard rushing games were the most by a Husker since the 2014 season. Grant’s Husker career got off to a strong start with three consecutive 100-yard rushing games to open the season, including a season-high 189 yards against North Dakota.
Palmer and Grant join three Husker defenders who were named All-Big Ten picks on Tuesday. Junior edge rusher Garrett Nelson was a second-team All-Big Ten pick by the conference coaches and the media. Junior linebacker Luke Reimer received honorable-mention accolades on both teams, while junior cornerback Quinton Newsome was an honorable-mention pick by the coaches.
In addition to the five All-Big Ten honorees, quarterback Matt Masker was selected as Nebraska’s Sportsmanship Award honoree for the 2022 season.
