Huskers defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was named the winner of the Bronko Nagurski Trophy last night in Charlotte, N.C. The first of what should be many awards. The Nagurski goes to the country’s top defensive player. Suh beat out TCU defensive end Jerry Hughes, Alabama defensive tackle Terrence Cody, Iowa linebacker Pat Angerer and Tennessee safety Eric Berry. The big news from yesterday is that Suh was named one of five finalist for the Heisman Trophy.
Suh will join Texas QB Colt McCoy, Bama running back Mark Ingram, Stanford QB Toby Gerhart and Florida’s Tim Tebow at the 75th Heisman Trophy awards announcement, which will take place on Saturday, Dec. 12, at the Nokia Theatre in Times Square. The event will be televised live from New York City at 7 p.m. CT on ESPN.
