2008 (Senior)
Cody Glenn was a major contributor for Nebraska for each of his four seasons in the program. After three seasons as a key part of the NU running game, Glenn switched to defense as a senior and made his mark as a linebacker.

The 6-0, 235-pound Glenn made the switch midway through spring ball in 2008 and excelled in the Huskers’ defensive scheme. In nine games, he racked up 51 tackles, including six tackles for loss and four pass breakups. He showed his ability as a defender in the opener, recording 12 tackles, three tackles for loss and three pass breakups in NU’s win over Western Michigan. He also topped 10 tackles with a career-high 14 stops against Virginia Tech. Glenn was suspended from the team for the final four games.

2007 (Junior)
Glenn was bothered by leg and foot injuries last fall. He played in five games and finished with 27 carries for 78 yards. Glenn scored a pair of touchdowns against top-ranked USC, and also finished the year with six catches for 52 yards.

Glenn had eight carries each against Nevada, USC and Iowa State. He had 29 rushing yards against Nevada, 20 yards against USC and added 27 yards vs. the Cyclones. Glenn also caught four passes for 46 yards against USC. He carried twice at Missouri, then appeared in only one game the remainder of the year, carrying one time at Texas.

2006 (Sophomore)
Glenn was hampered much of the season by injuries, including missing the final three games with a foot injury. He gained 370 yards and scored a team-high eight touchdowns. His production was a key part of an I-back group that totaled more than 2,400 yards and 26 touchdowns. Glenn scored two touchdowns on three occasions, and bulled his way for a career-high 148 yards on 19 carries at Iowa State, which was one of four games for Glenn with double-figure carries. Glenn made the most of his 71 attempts, averaging 5.2 yards per carry.

Glenn opened the year with 13 carries for 88 yards and a touchdown against Louisiana Tech, then added 47 yards and a pair of touchdowns against Nicholls State. He had seven carries for 33 yards and scored the game-winning touchdown in Nebraska’s 39-32 overtime victory over Kansas. A week later Glenn posted his career night at Iowa State, including two touchdowns in the Huskers’ 28-14 win. Glenn had 22 rushing yards at Kansas State, then carried six times for 25 yards and two touchdowns in a 28-27 victory at Texas A&M.

2005 (Freshman)
Glenn emerged as a short-yardage back and finished with 131 yards and four touchdowns on 45 carries. He did not play in the first two games, but appeared in seven of the final 10 contests. Glenn lost yardage on just one of his 45 carries.

He ran for 20 yards on four carries in a 7-6 win over Pitt, then played a huge role in the Huskers’ near-comeback against Texas Tech, with 12 carries for 39 yards, including second-quarter touchdowns of one and five yards. He had a season-high 41 yards in a 23-14 win at Baylor. He scored his third touchdown at Missouri, then finished the season with eight carries for 18 yards and a one-yard touchdown at Colorado. He missed the Alamo Bowl with an injury.

Before Nebraska (Rusk HS)
Glenn was a star running back for Coach Wayne Mahaffey at Rusk High School for four seasons, rushing for 6,353 yards and 87 touchdowns (both school records) in his four-year career. Glenn’s rushing total was the eighth-highest total in Texas Class 3A history and the 27th-most in state history, regardless of class. He capped his prep career by rushing for 1,828 yards on 238 carries and scoring 28 touchdowns as a senior. He also caught 10 passes for 159 yards and a touchdown out of the Rusk backfield and helped his team to a 7-3 record and a berth in the Class 3A playoffs.

Glenn’s effort as a senior earned him second-team Class 3A all-state honors, and all-district honors for the fourth consecutive year. He topped the 2,000-yard barrier as a junior, rushing for 2,006 yards and 27 touchdowns on 278 carries. His performance earned him third-team all-state honors in his class. He was an honorable-mention all-state pick as a sophomore when he racked up 1,866 yards and 25 touchdowns. He committed to Nebraska after also visiting Kansas, and had offers from Texas A&M and Oklahoma State among others.

Personal
Glenn is the son of Ricy Knowlton and Erma Hamilton, and was born on Oct. 6, 1986. He is a sociology major and is on track to graduate in May of 2009. Glenn has volunteered his time with Nebraska’s hospital visitations, the Read to Succeed Book Drive and the Teammates program. He was named to the 2008 Brook Berringer Citizenship Team for his outreach work. Glenn has also twice been named to the Big 12 Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll.
