Nebraska senior cornerback Lamar Jackson earned more recognition on Wednesday for his standout senior season. 

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Jackson was named second-team All-Big Ten by The Associated Press, voted on by a panel of reporters who cover the Big Ten. 

Jackson had a career-best three interceptions during his senior season and also forced a fumble, had a sack and recorded a career-high 12 pass breakups. 

Jackson last week was named second-team All-Big Ten by the league's coaches and media, as well. 

He was the only Cornhusker represented on the AP teams, which consist of a first and second unit. 

Ohio State had the offensive and defensive players of the year in quarterback Justin Fields and defensive lineman Chase Young, while Buckeye head coach Ryan Day was named coach of the year. Purdue freshman David Bell was named the league's newcomer of the year. 

Huskers earn academic honors: Senior NU linebacker Mohamed Barry earned Academic All-Big Ten accolades for the fourth straight season, leading a list of 48 football players and 100 student-athletes at Nebraska overall to earn the distinction Wednesday. 

Of those football players recognized, nine were for the third time in their collegiate careers.
