JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — En route to breaking Nebraska's single-season record for touchdown receptions — a record held by Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Rodgers, no less — NU senior Quincy Enunwa broke another record. His 99-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter was the longest in Husker history, four yards better than Fred Duda's 95-yard touchdown pass to Freeman White against Colorado in 1965.

With the play, Enunwa caught his 12th touchdown this year, one better than Rodgers, who caught 11 in 1971. Enunwa entered the day with 10 touchdowns, and he tied Rodgers in the second quarter with a 5-yard grab from quarterback Tommy Armstrong.
