LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) -- Wan’Dale Robinson earned his second Big Ten Freshman-of-the-Week award Monday after chalking-up 186 all-purpose yards in Nebraska’s 13-10 win over Northwestern last Saturday.

  • Robinson rushed for 44 yards on seven carries, highlighted by a career-long 42-yard touchdown run for NU’s only touchdown.
  • He hauled in a career-high seven receptions for 123 yards, including 33-yard reception in the final minute of regulation to set up Lane McCallum’s game-winning field goal as time expired.
  • Robinson also snared a 49-yard reception in the third quarter en route to his first career 100-yard receiving performance.

It is the second time in three weeks that Robinson has won the freshman honor. He was also recognized after Nebraska's win over Illinois.
