As we saw at Big 10 Media days this week in Chicago, Nebraska wide receiver Kenny Bell was a big hit with his personality and his famed "Afro"....

By the time Kenny finishes this season, the senior from Boulder,Colorado could have the all time recieving yards record at Nebraska.

He has 1901 yards on 134 catches less than 600 yards and 70 catches away from the all time team marks.

Kenny belives that was most unlikely to happen when he first came to college.

Nothing would make me happier to achieve that would be unbelievable. At no time in my life if you would have told me four years ago to this day I guess I was getting to Nebraska just then. But lets say four and a half years ago January or December of 2009 you would have told me I would have been in the race to be the Univesity of Nebraska's all time leading receiver I would have laughed in your face.

Kenny also returned a kickoff for a touchdown in that overtime win at Penn State.

Coach Bo Pelini is likely to use Kenny to again return kicks trying to get him on the field with that speed whenever possible.

Kenny and the Huskers open the season August 30th against the Owls of Florida Atlantic.
