Re­plac­ing Suh

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Beastly de­fen­sive tackle Ndamukong Suh de­parted as the most dec­o­rated de­fender in Ne­braska his­tory. But an­other le­gendary Husker name is ready to step up.

Sopho­more Baker Steinkuh­ler, whose fa­ther Dean won the 1983 Out­land and Lom­bardi awards, showed prom­ise as a red­shirt fresh­man with 17 to­tal tack­les (two be­hind the line) and two pass breakups. Ne­braska also re­turns All-Big 12 tackle Jared Crick, who posted 9.5 sacks and 15 tack­les for losses last year. It will be in­ter­est­ing to see how he does with­out Suh by his side.
