Khalil Davis

On Wednesday, Oct. 2, the Big Ten conference announced that Nebraska defensive linemen Khalil Davis has been suspended for one game due to violating the Big Ten Sportsmanship Policy after he struck an opposing player near the 9:18 mark of the first quarter against Ohio State. 

Davis, a senior, has played in all five games for the Huskers this season, making 17 tackles, six tackles-for-loss, and he also leads the team with three sacks. 

In a statement, Nebraska head coach Scott Frost said, “we have been in communication with the Big Ten Conference Office over the past day regarding Khalil Davis, and support the Big Ten’s disciplinary action. We do not condone unsportsmanlike play or behavior in our program, and will use this as an educational opportunity with our team on how to play the game the right way. We are moving forward with our preparation for Saturday’s game with Northwestern.”
