Player Overview

Senior Spencer Long had his 2013 season cut short after suffering a knee injury at Purdue in mid-October. Long underwent subsequent surgery and was lost for the season, the first in a string of crippling injuries for the Nebraska offensive line. Despite missing half of the season, the senior captain has continued to make a mark on the Husker program. Long has continued to provide leadership to his fellow offensive linemen, while making his mark off the field.

Long earned first-team CoSIDA Academic All-America honors to help continue the Huskers' tradition of academic success. He was joined on the academic All-America team by his brother, Jake, a second-team honoree. The Long brothers became the third set of brothers in Nebraska history to both earn academic All-America awards, and the first to do so in the same season. Long was also one of 16 football student-athletes to earn the prestigious National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete Awards, presented in New York City in early December. The award carried an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship, which Long intends to put toward medical school.

Originally a walk-on, Long was placed on scholarship before his junior season and earned second-team All-America honors in 2012. He was a leading contender for first-team All-America honors before his injury this fall. Long earned his degree in biological sciences/pre-medicine in December and is one of 19 seniors playing the bowl game as a graduate. He also earned Academic All-Big Ten honors for the third consecutive season.

10/17/2013 - Nebraska OL Spencer Long (knee) likely done for the year...Nebraska starting guard Spencer Long's season is done due to a knee injury that requires surgery, coach Bo Pelini said Tuesday. Long suffered the injury on the opening possession of Nebraska's 44-7 win against Purdue, getting tripped up while blocking on a run by Imani Cross. The surgery is scheduled for Thursday, and it will end his season.

Long, a former walk-on, ranks third on the team in career starts, trailing only to tackle Jeremiah Sirles and quarterback Taylor Martinez. Long earned first-team All-Big Ten honors from the media and coaches in 2012, even making the AP's All-America second team. With Long out, Nebraska is expected to try several different options to complete replace him on the senior-laden offensive line. Starting center Cole Pensick has some experience at guard, but junior Mike Moudy, Long's listed backup, played the remainder of the game against Purdue. Nebraska is off this week, hitting the road to face Minnesota next on Oct. 26. - Chip Patterson, CBSSports.com
