2003 (Senior)
Quarterback Jammal Lord was an ironman for Nebraska in his final two seasons, starting 27 consecutive games, while guiding one of the nation's most prolific rushing attacks. He made his way near the top of the Nebraska record book by the conclusion of his career. The Bayonne, N.J., native finished his senior season with 2,253 yards of total offense, pushing his career total to 5,421 yards, placing him in third on Nebraska's career list, trailing only Eric Crouch and Tommie Frazier.

Lord moved into the top 10 on Nebraska's career rushing list with 79 yards in the Alamo Bowl against Michigan State. He finished his Husker career with 2,573 rushing yards to rank 10th in school history and second among NU quarterbacks. he also finished seventh on NU's career passing charts with 2,848 yards. Lord fell just shy of a second straight 1,000-1,000 season in 2003, passing for 1,305 yards to go with a team-high 948 rushing yards.

Under Lord's direction, the Nebraska offense averaged 235.6 rushing yards per game in 2003 to rank seventh nationally. Lord averaged 72.9 yards rushing per game, sixth nationally among quarterbacks. He rushed for 100 yards three times as a senior, including a season-high 111 yards at Missouri, and had eight career 100-yard rushing games, the second-most by a Husker quarterback.

Lord produced seven 100-yard passing games in 2003, and capped his career with a personal-best 160 yards in the Alamo Bowl win over Michigan State. He added a career-long 66-yard run in the Alamo Bowl.

A talented all-around athlete, Lord was given an opportunity to continue his career as a safety after being chosen in the sixth round of the 2004 NFL Draft (175th overall selection) by the Houston Texans.

2002 (Junior)
Lord grabbed the starting quarterback job during 2002 spring drills and produced record-breaking numbers in his junior season. Lord completed the season with a Nebraska quarterback record 1,412 yards rushing and accounted for a school record 2,774 yards of total offense.
