LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) - Nebraska placekicker Connor Culp was officially named Big Ten Kicker of the Year on Thursday.

Culp, who transferred from LSU, went 13/15 on field goal attempts and hit a career-long 49-yard field goal in the Huskers’ win over Purdue.

It’s a breath of fresh air at a position that hasn’t had that type of consistency in recent years.

Culp was also named to the All Big Ten first team by coaches and by media.

A senior, Culp did not participate in senior day festivities prior to the Minnesota game on Saturday, which does not confirm but points to Culp returning to Lincoln in 2021.
