Nebraska's Eric Martin Suspended One Game by Big 12 Conference
October 27, 2010
Upon review of game tape of the Saturday, October 23 Nebraska at Oklahoma State football game, Big 12 Conference Commissioner Dan Beebe has announced that Nebraska sophomore linebacker Eric Martin has been suspended for the October 30 game vs. Missouri.

"Mr. Martin committed a flagrant act of targeting an opponent with the crown of his helmet in violation of NCAA Football Rules," said Commissioner Beebe.  "This dangerous hit is one that we in the football community are trying to remove from the game." 

The hit occurred during a kickoff return around the 6:40 mark in the first quarter of Saturday's game.  In accordance with NCAA Football Rule 9-6-3, "if subsequent review of a game by a conference reveals plays involving flagrant personal fouls that game officials did not call, the conference may impose sanctions prior to the next scheduled game."
