Kenny Bell just might achieve his goal of becoming the first Nebraska player to crack 1,000 yards receiving in a season. Even if Bell doesn't, he's still on track to have one of the best seasons ever by a Husker receiver.
Bell has 20 catches for 463 yards through six games. Assuming the Huskers play the minimum of 12 games, he would need to increase his per-game average from 77 to 90 yards to pass 1972 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Rodgers' record of 942 yards and hit 1,000.
Bell figures a big season statistically can only help the Huskers (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten), who visit Northwestern (6-1, 2-1) on Saturday.
