LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah is the Big Ten's offensive player of the week.

The senior from Homewood, Alabama, rushed for a career-high 232 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in the Cornhuskers' 55-7 win over Florida Atlantic on Saturday.

It was Abdullah's 18th career game over 100 yards rushing and his 12th in the past 14 games.

He also became the eighth player in school history to surpass 3,000 career rushing yards. He now stands No. 6 on the Huskers' all-time list.
