Nebraska’s Anton Stephenson claimed his second Big Ten freshman of the week award on Monday.

He had five top ten finishes, including four in the top five, against Iowa and Penn State last weekend. He helped NU post a team total of 423.30.

Stephenson is the only Husker men’s gymnast to win Big Ten freshman of the week in the history of the program. He previously won the award in January.
