How big has Ameer Abdullah's Heisman Trophy campaign grown?

On Friday night, Homewood High School, which is where Abdullah attended, spelled out "Fear Ameer," in honor of the Huskers' star running back.

Of course, just two weeks ago, Nebraska's band started the trend by spelling out "Fear Ameer" during halftime of the Huskers' primetime matchup with Illinois.

Heading into Week 7 of the college football season, Abdullah leads the country in rushing with 878 yards and 10 touchdowns. The Huskers have a bye this weekend and then will take on Northwestern at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 18 at Ryan Field.
