Lincoln, NE - One of the most unique things about the Nebraska football team is the walk-on program. High school players from all over the state will often turn down scholarships for a chance to walk-on with the Huskers. It's a unique situation that Bo Pelini hasn't seen anywhere else.
This year there are plenty of walk-ons and former walk-ons making an impact. Two walk-ons start on the offensive line. Former walk-on Justin Blatchford broke up a pass to clinc a win over Penn State last week. And Brett Maher is one of the best kickers in the country. He is also a former walk-on.
