Nebraska announced its 2010 season captains at the team's annual banquet in December.

Senior defensive end Pierre Allen, senior defensive back Prince Amukamara, senior I-back Roy Helu Jr., and senior place-kicker/punter Alex Henery were named Nebraska's season captains at the conclusion of the year.

Throughout the 2010 season, Nebraska elected game captains each week, before determining its season-long captains at the conclusion of the regular season.

In addition to the captain honors distributed at the banquet, the Huskers also named several other award winners at the year-end banquet. Henery earned the Chamberlin Trophy, while senior wide receiver Niles Paul claimed the Fischer Native Son Award. Senior safety Rickey Thenarse captured the Novak Trophy. Sophomore I-back Rex Burkhead was named Nebraska's Lifter of the Year.
