Honors and Awards
The 6-3, 290-pound Moore played in every game in 2011, and he made seven starts, including the final five games of the season. The Huskers utilized as many as five defensive tackles in the regular rotation, but were down to just Steinkuhler and Moore as healthy options at one point late in the season.
Moore earned his degree in sociology in December of 2011.
Moore had a career-high seven tackles against Northwestern, then added six, including a tackle for loss, at Penn State. He had two solo tackles in addition to his interception at Michigan, and had his first sack of the year in the Capital One Bowl against South Carolina.
Following the season, Moore was chosen as the winner of Nebraska's Tom Novak Award, which is presented to the Husker senior who "best exemplifies courage and determination despite all odds in the manner of Nebraska All-America center Tom Novak." The award is voted on by Nebraska sportswriters and broadcasters and presented at the Outland Trophy banquet in Omaha.

Moore totaled 81 tackles, including 31 tackles for loss, 14 sacks and a pair of fumble recoveries as a senior.

Moore helped Coach Wayne Reese and McDonogh 35 to a 7-3 record and a trip to the second round of the Louisiana 4A state playoffs.
