He's been everything for Nebraska, which leans heavily on Abdullah's game-breaking ability as the centerpiece of coordinator Tim Beck's explosive offense.

He has run for more than 100 yards in each of the last two years against this week's opponent, Michigan State." Of course, the high praise shouldn't be too surprising: World-Herald staff writer Sam McKewon has Abdullah currently tabbed as the nation's top running back.
