Amukamara a unanimous All-American

Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara is one of just two Big 12 players who were named unanimous All-Americans.

Amukamara, a Thorpe Award finalist, made all five recognized All-American teams (the Football Writers Association of America, the American Football Coaches Association, the Walter Camp Foundation, the Associated Press and Sporting News) to earn the honor.

Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon was the only other player in the conference to duplicate the feat.

The Huskers senior earned the honor without recording a single interception. Opponents threw in his direction just 43 times this season, and Amukamara gave up only 13 receptions.

He'll close out his career against Washington in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 30.
