Receiver Tim Marlowe battled through an injury-plagued 2012 season to remain a key part of an outstanding group of Nebraska receivers. The 2012 season capped a productive career for Marlowe both as a receiver and a key special teams contributor.

The 5-10, 175-pound Marlowe was a fixture on special teams each of the past four seasons, and he was a regular in the receiving rotation the past three seasons. In 2012, Marlowe suffered a clavicle injury in the opener against Southern Miss, forcing him to miss the next five games, before returning for the second half of the season.

A native of Youngstown, Ohio, Marlowe was one of 17 Nebraska seniors to participate in the bowl game as a graduate after earning his degree in communication studies in December.

2012 (Senior)
Marlowe played in nine games, including each of the final eight games of the season. He finished with four receptions for 54 yards, including two catches for 23 yards at Northwestern, and single receptions against both Michigan and Michigan State. Marlowe also returned four punts for 21 yards, with three for 20 yards at Michigan State and had a 30-yard kickoff return in the opener against Southern Miss.

2011 (Junior)
Marlowe played in all 13 games, with a start at Michigan, and finished the year with 12 receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown. He was also a running threat with seven carries for 77 yards, and he averaged 19.5 yards on 10 kickoff returns.

Marlowe nabbed a career-high four catches for 44 yards and his first career touchdown against Northwestern, while making three catches for 24 yards at Michigan. He added single receptions in five other games. On the ground, Marlowe had a 39-yard run to the Michigan State 1 that set up a field goal to give NU a 10-0 lead. Marlowe also had a 23-yard run at Michigan and averaged nearly 11 yards per carry. He also had a season-long 28-yard kickoff return against Michigan.

2010 (Sophomore)
Marlowe played in all 14 games and returned 13 kickoffs for an average of 21.9 yards per return and returned three punts for an average of 5.3 yards. He helped Nebraska feature one of the Big 12's top overall special teams units. Marlowe also saw action at receiver, but did not have a reception. He did have two rushes for 14 yards, including a 13-yarder against Western Kentucky.

Marlowe totaled 82 all-purpose yards in the opener, including a career-long 42-yard kick return. He added back-to-back 20-plus yard kickoff returns against Oklahoma State that both set up touchdowns.

2009 (Redshirt Freshman)
Marlowe played in all 14 games, teaming with Niles Paul on NU's top kickoff return unit. Marlowe also saw action at receiver. He had 12 returns for 284 yards, an average of 23.7 yards per return, helping Nebraska rank 19th nationally in kickoff return average. Marlowe had two returns of 30 or more yards, including a season-long 40-yarder on the opening kickoff at Kansas that set up a touchdown. 

2008 (Redshirt)
Marlowe redshirted and was selected as the Offensive Scout Team Co-MVP.  

Before Nebraska (Cardinal Mooney HS)
Marlowe was one of the final additions to the 2008 Nebraska recruiting class, committing to the Husker program the week of signing day. Marlowe was the first player from the state of Ohio to commit to the Husker program in 10 years. Marlowe showed his versatility as a senior at Cardinal Mooney High School, beginning the season at receiver, before being pressed into service at quarterback and leading his team to the state championship game. Marlowe also continued to play a role on the Mooney defense.

Marlowe ran for almost 300 yards on 42 carries and scored four touchdowns. He also caught nine passes for 216 yards and three more touchdowns. On defense, he had 36 tackles, led his team in pass deflections with 32 and in interceptions with five. He also had three kickoff returns for 70 yards. His play helped Cardinal Mooney and Coach P.J. Fecko to a 14-1 record and a Division IV state runner-up finish. In the state title game, Marlowe rushed 17 times for 104 yards and a touchdown, completed 5-of-6 passes for 135 yards and a touchdown and made three tackles on defense. Marlowe was also a two-way standout for Cardinal Mooney as a junior, helping the Cardinals to a perfect 15-0 record and a Division IV state title.  

Tim is the son of Richard and Maureen Marlowe, and was born on Feb. 10, 1989. A communication studies major, Marlowe earned his bachelor's degree from Nebraska in December of 2012. He was named to the 2010 Big 12 Commissioner’s Spring Academic Honor Roll, and the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall of 2011 and 2012. Marlowe volunteered his time as part of Nebraska’s team hospital visits.
