One of the nation’s top offensive linemen, Glaser was named a first-team, All-American by Walter Camp, and a second-team All-American by the Associated Press and Football News, following a season in which he helped power Nebraska to its sixth NCAA rushing crown in 10 years at 375.3 yards per game. Glaser also helped the Huskers lead the conference and rank second nationally in scoring offense at 44.7 points per game, while leading the league and ranking third national in total offense at 513.3 yards per game. What he meant to the team is well-illustrated by a comparison of Nebraska’s rushing stats for the eight games he played with the three he missed because of a broken big toe. Glaser suffered the injury in the opener vs. Northern Illinois, then sat out the Utah, Minnesota and Oregon Stat games, in which NU average 335.0 yards on the ground. Against NIU and the seven Big Eight teams after Glaser’s return, the Huskers averaged 390.4 yards per game. In his first game back from injury, vs. Kansas State, Oct. 7, the Huskers rolled up 542 rushing yards and 723 total-offense yards, both highs for the Big Eight in 1989. The 723 total-offense yards vs. K-State were the forth-highest ever at NU, and the most since 1983. One of the biggest men ever to play at Nebraska, Glaser also earned first-team All-Big 8 honors from all three selectors, the Associated Press, United Press International and the conference coaches.
Glaser started every game at right tackle on an offensive line that led Nebraska to its fifth NCAA rushing title of the 1980s (382.3 yards per game) and helped clear the way for I-back Ken Clark to finish fifth in the nation and second in the Big 8 in rushing at 124.8 yards per game. But, playing on a line that also feathered Jake Young and two other first-team All-Big 8 picks in tackle Bob Sledge and guard Andy Keeler, he settled for second-team all-conference laurels from Unites Press International.
Glaser skipped a redshirt year, and played in every game as a true sophomore as the alternate left tackle behind Bob Sledge, helping Nebraska rank second nationally in total offense at 489.0 yards per game.
Glaser started at right tackle on the 4-1-0 freshmen team which averaged 371.8 total-offense yards per game, including 256.4 yards per game on the ground.
