"It's like a family here," Moore said, acknowledging that Nebraska's "amazing tradition" and playing for a "fiery" head coach makes the experience all the more worthwhile.

Now a sophomore defensive tackle, Moore is battling Jared Crick for the starting defensive tackle spot opposite Ndamukong Suh,
