for a quarterback, was named Saturday as the Big 12 Conference coaches'
offensive player of the year.As if all that was not enough Eric took home

playing qb in the NFL.

yards, including a career-best 74-yard burst, NU sophomore Josh Davis set the school's single-season record
for kickoff return yards. Davis now has 25
