Three Huskers Named All Conference

Three Huskers Named All Conference

Three Nebraska offensive standouts were honored by the Big Ten Conference on Tuesday, earning all-conference recognition. Senior offensive tackle Brenden Jaimes, senior offensive guard Matt Farniok and sophomore receiver Wan’Dale Robinson all earned honorable-mention All-Big Ten accolades. Jaimes and Farniok were honored by both the Big Ten Coaches and Media panels, while Robinson was recognized by the conference coaches. Jaimes and Farniok have been fixtures on the Nebraska offensive line for the past four seasons. Jaimes started 40 straight games over the past four seasons, a school record for offensive lineman. The Austin, Texas native finished his career with 40 overall starts, the second-most ever for an offensive lineman.

The 2020 season marks the third straight year Jaimes has been and honorable-mention All-Big Ten choice. Farniok has made 35 starts in his career, including all seven games this season, six at right guard and one at center. A Sioux Falls, S.D., native Farniok has started all 31 games over the past three seasons. A two-time team captain, Farniok is also a four-time Academic All-Big Ten selection. Robinson is Nebraska’s most versatile and explosive offensive player. He earned honorable-mention all-conference recognition for the second straight season. Robinson leads the Huskers with 45 receptions in seven games and is just five catches from the 15th 50-catch season in school history. Robinson also ranks as Nebraska’s third-leading rusher in 2020. The offensive honors announced on Tuesday are the first of three days of all-conference recognition. The All-Big Ten defense will be announced on Wednesday, with special teams honors revealed on Thursday.
