    You’re correct. It’s referring to his stats in the game at Purdue, the one that earned him Most Dominating Performance. Sorry for confusion.

How can a 12-0 season (following a 7-6seson) with a new coach and no post season motivation not be reconized???

Not a bash against Mingo, but surprised little Jack didn’t get most couragous.

Anyways, what is important is the awareness that the Nebraska spring game brought to pediatric brain cancer. GBR!!! GTJ!!!
