Nebraska defensive end Ross Dzuris saw his first game action last week against BYU

Nebraska walk-on Ross Dzuris got his first game action last weekend against BYU and could see an increased role on Saturday against South Alabama.

LINCOLN, Neb. - With an injury to senior defensive end Jack Gangwish, Nebraska defensive end Jack Gangwish could be used more this week after registering his first career snaps last week. 

A virtual unknown to the coaching staff coming into spring practices, Dzuris flashed early and worked his way up the depth chart, eventually settling in as a top back-up. 

"He's got some quickness, some pass-rush ability," said defensive coordinator Mark Banker. "He pays attention to detail, and he has some tools."

Since arriving on campus, the junior has put on nearly 20-pounds of weight and grown a famous sports mustache. In the video above, he talks about his frist game action against BYU last weekend.
