LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Ameer Abdullah is on pace to deliver one of the greatest seasons by a running back in Nebraska's history.
Abdullah's 135 yards per game leads the Big Ten and is sixth nationally. He would be the first Nebraska player since Ahman Green in 1997 to go over 100 yards in seven straight games, though he'll have to do it this week against Michigan State's top-ranked rushing defense.
He's on track to finish the regular season with 1,618 yards - which would be the fifth-most at a school that has a long history of producing some of the college game's best backs.
Abdullah says he doesn't pay attention to the statistics. He says he's more interested in winning.
