A celebration of football: Interviews with Huskers at the Outland Trophy award dinner

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Trev Alberts, Matt Rhule and Tom Osborne all made appearances at the Outland Trophy award dinner in Omaha on Wednesday.

The dinner is an annual tradition that honors college football’s top interior linemen across the country.

Rhule spoke about what it means to be the Huskers’ head coach at the dinner.

“I hope you guys know that when I walk through the stadium and I see the words ‘day by day,’ that’s not just a prayer,” he said. “That’s not just something, that’s a way of life. It’s about getting up every single day and trying to be great at what you do.”

Four Nebraska seniors – Travis Vokolek, Caleb Tannor, Matt Masker and Trent Hixson – were also recognized at the dinner.

Vokolek and Tannor announced in December that they had declared for the NFL draft.
