A consensus All-Big Eight choice in his final year at NU, Strasburger led the Huskers in lost yardage by dropping opposing ball carries for a minus-66 yards on the year. He set a school record for passes broken up by a lineman with seven. His best game of the year was a seven-tackle effort against UCLA, including five solo tackles, two sacks, a fumble recovery and a pair of pass breakups.
Strasburger started every game for NU, including the Orange Bowl, and was third among defensive linemen in total tackles with 42 (22 solo) and led the team in fumble recoveries with two. Strasburger led the linemen in pass breakups with three. His career-high tackle day was a 10-tackle effort in Nebraska's 14-10 win at Oklahoma State. He shared the team lead for tackles with six against Colorado.
One of the few non-redshirting sophomores, Strasburger finished the year with 31 tackles and six sacks behind All-Big Eight defensive end Tony Felici, who Strasburger bumped from the starting lineup for the Orange Bowl against LSU. He clinched the 28-24 win against Oklahoma and the Big Eight championship with an interception late in the fourth quarter that he returned 22 yards to the OU one in the final 30 seconds of the game.
A walk-on at the start of the season, Strasburger made a name for himself as the starting right defensive end for the 5-0 freshman squad.
