Nebraska football running back Anthony Grant received accolades on Wednesday, as he was a Big Ten honorable mention selection by both Big Ten media and Big Ten coaches, per 247Sports’ Michael Bruntz.

He carried the ball 218 times for 915 yards and six touchdowns. He managed to average 4.2 yards per carry. Grant started off the season strong, posting 100-yard performances in his first three games. The running back tallied a season-high 189 yards against North Dakota on September 3.

He would go on to record five games of at least 100 yards, with his most recent performance being a 21-carry, 115-yard effort against Minnesota in November.

Grant’s production dipped a little bit, as he faced some of the tougher defenses in the Big Ten. He had 11 carries for 22 yards against Michigan on November 12.

However, Nebraska football’s performance in the running game struggled due to numerous issues. The offensive line play struggled, and the playcalling often favored the passing game. Nevertheless, Grant was able to put up solid numbers about things considered.

Grant originally came over from the New Mexico Military Institute. In two seasons at New Mexico, he ran for 2,549 yards and 28 touchdowns. He averaged 7.1 yards per carry. He officially transferred into the Nebraska football program in January.

Prior to his time at New Mexico, he played at Florida State. He started in every game as a true freshman in 2018 and had 11 kickoff returns for 247 yards.

Nebraska football had a difficult year record wise, as they finished 4-8. Nevertheless, players such as Grant were productive and exciting to watch at certain points in the season.
