If you are a fan of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, you don't need to be told just what punter Sam Koch meant to the big red. You could argue him being the MVP in two, perhaps three of Nebraska's games this last season.

Who would have thought that it would be Sam being the first punter picked in the 2006 NFL Draft?

It hasn't diminished his own impact, however, and against Pitt this evening, he put an emphasis on just how important his role can be. Booting a personal record and the second longest punt ever at Nebraska, Koch helped Nebraska putt Pitt on its heels long enough for the Huskers to help seal a victory against the Panthers.
