Terrence Moore began his senior season in the regular rotation on the defensive line behind starters Jared Crick and Baker Steinkuhler, but Moore moved into a leading role over the second half of the year with Crick sidelined by injury.

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.

2011 (Senior)
Moore finished the year with 20 tackles, including a sack and two tackles for loss, while adding four quarterback hurries. He also had an interception and a 10-yard return at Michigan to set up a Nebraska field goal. Moore made single tackles in four of the first eight games, then racked up 15 of his stops in a three-game stretch late in the year.

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.

2010 (Junior)
Moore was the top reserve at defensive tackle and finished with 16 tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack. He had a season-high four tackles in a win at Washington, one week after he earned a sack and recovered a fumble against Idaho. Moore also produced a tackle for loss in wins over Missouri and Kansas. In the Big 12 Championship, his pass deflection inside Oklahoma's red zone resulted in Courtney Osborne's interception that set up Nebraska's second touchdown of the game. Moore capped the year with two tackles in the Holiday Bowl, while earning his first career start in the game.

2009 (Sophomore)
Moore played in four games as a sophomore and recorded a pair of tackles against Louisiana-Lafayette.

2008 (Redshirt Freshman)
Moore played in seven games, helping Nebraska nearly triple its sack total from the previous season. He finished with eight tackles, including six in the first three games. Moore had three tackles and two sacks for 11 yards against Western Michigan. He added two tackles against San Jose State.

2007 (Redshirt)
Moore sat out his first season as a redshirt and worked on the scout team.

Before Nebraska (McDonogh 35 HS)
Moore was Nebraska's first signee from the Louisiana prep ranks since 2002. He was an impact performer for McDonogh 35 Senior High School in New Orleans, the same high school as former Husker star and NFL All-Pro defensive lineman Neil Smith.

Moore totaled 81 tackles, including 31 tackles for loss, 14 sacks and a pair of fumble recoveries as a senior. His performance earned him first-team New Orleans all-metro and first-team all-district honors. 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.

Moore played in only a handful of games in 2005 after arriving in Texas, but remained on the recruiting radar of numerous schools. Moore only visited Nebraska, but received strong recruiting interest from Alabama, Missouri, Oklahoma State and Tulane among others.

Terrence is the son of Judy Hunter and was born on Jan. 31, 1989. A sociology major at Nebraska, Moore earned his bachelor's degree in December of 2011. He regularly volunteered his time with American Education Week, Husker Connect and as part of Nebraska's numerous hospital visits. Moore was named to the 2010 Big 12 Commissioner's Fall Academic Honor Roll.
