Drew Brown continued a family tradition of outstanding kicking at Nebraska with a solid true freshman season in 2014. The Dallas area product took control of the starting place-kicking chores from the outset of the year and went on to rank among the Big Ten scoring leaders.

Brown’s older brother, Kris, ranks as the second-leading scorer in Nebraska history, and was a place-kicker for more than a decade in the National Football League. The younger Brown set a Nebraska freshman scoring record with 101 points in 2014, breaking the previous record held by his older brother.

Brown teams with punter Sam Foltz to give Nebraska a pair of talented returning kicking specialists for 2015. 

2014 (Freshman)
Brown connected on 14-of-21 field goals and was perfect on 59 PAT attempts. The 59 extra points were the third-most in school history without a miss. His 7.8 points per game ranked seventh in the Big Ten and fourth among kickers. Brown had three games with two field goals. Brown also handled kickoff duties for part of the season, booting 14 touchbacks.

Brown made a 44-yard field goal in his NU debut against Florida Atlantic and made six PATs. He connected on 2-of-3 field goals at Fresno State and made a season-high seven PATs. He also made a pair of field goals (19 and 39 yards) against Miami and had three touchbacks.

Brown had a season-high seven touchbacks against Illinois and made a 29-yard field goal in the game. Brown made at least one field goal in each of the final four games. He connected on a 20-yarder at Iowa with eight seconds remaining to send the game to overtime. In the Holiday Bowl he made field goals of 34 and 24 yards.
