A group of 10 Nebraska football student-athletes were named Big Ten Distinguished Scholars by the conference yesterday. 

That was a record for the football program and NU also set a school record by having a total of 100 student-athletes receive the honor. 

To be eligible for selection, students must have been named Academic All-Big Ten in the previous academic year, must have been enrolled full-time for that year and needed a minimum GPA of 3.70 during that time.
