Honors & Awards » Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall 2014)
Sophomore walk-on Dylan Utter worked his way into playing time on the offensive line in the 2014 season, capped by earning a start in the Holiday Bowl. Utter provided depth at guard throughout the season, but moved inside to start at center against USC when NU’s top two centers were sidelined by injury.
The 6-1, 285-pound Utter could be a contender for significant playing time at guard or center in 2015, positions where NU lost all three starters to graduation.
2014 (Sophomore) Utter played in six games, with a start at center in the Holiday Bowl. He spent the majority of the year adding depth at guard and playing in five of the first seven games. Utter’s play against USC helped Nebraska roll up 525 yards of total offense and 42 points. Utter saw significant action against Illinois when NU topped 400 rushing yards.
2013 (Redshirt Freshman) Utter added depth on the line in 2013, but did not play in a game.
2013 (Redshirt Freshman) A walk-on, Utter redshirted in 2012.
