Lincoln – Junior I-back Marlon Lucky continued to rack up recognition on Tuesday for his career performance in Nebraska’s 52-10 win over Nevada, by earning Big 12 Offensive Player-of-the-Week honors.

The award comes just two days after Lucky was named the Walter Camp Football Foundation National Offensive Player of the Week.

Lucky’s award-winning week comes as no surprise, as the North Hollywood, Calif., native pounded out a nation-leading and career-best 233 rushing yards to help the Huskers to 625 total yards against the Wolf Pack, the most during Head Coach Bill Callahan’s four-year tenure. Lucky was also responsible for four of Nebraska’s seven touchdowns, including a grab for Nebraska’s only passing score of the afternoon.

This is the second player of the week accolade for Lucky, who also earned the honor following his performance against Troy in 2006, when he notched 156 yards on 10 carries and three touchdowns.

Also gathering league recognition this week was Missouri strong safety Pig Brown on defense and Colorado place-kicker Kevin Eberhart for special teams, giving the North division all three Big 12 honors in the opening week of 2007.

Lucky returns to the backfield for the Huskers this weekend, as Nebraska heads to its first road contest of the season at Wake Forest on Saturday, Sept. 8. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN at 11 a.m.
