Nebraska vs. Iowa, 11/24/17

Nebraska defensive lineman Mick Stoltenberg (44) and linebacker Chris Weber (49) gang up on Iowa running back Akrum Wadley (25) during the first half Friday at Memorial Stadium.

Chris Weber was named academic All-Big Ten for the fourth time during his Husker career, one of 85 Huskers who garnered honors for the fall season, the conference announced Wednesday.

Weber, a senior linebacker who is on track to graduate this month with a degree in nutrition science, led a group of 42 Husker football players and is just the 11th football player to be a four-time academic all-conference selection. Senior fullback Harrison Jordan is a three-time honoree, while seven other Huskers became two-time members — Mohamed Barry, Michael Decker, Jerald Foster, Tyler Hoppes, Joshua Kalu, Gabe Rahn and Mick Stoltenberg.

The Nebraska soccer team had 15 named academic All-Big Ten, the volleyball team added eight, the men's cross country team had nine and the women’s cross country team 11. Lincoln Southeast graduate Elsa Forsberg, a Husker sophomore, highlighted the women's cross country team with her 4.0 grade-point average as a fisheries and wildlife major.

To be eligible for selection, students must be in at least their second academic year and carry a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
