Senior receiver Quincy Enunwa was a leader for Nebraska on and off the field throughout the 2013 season. With a strong senior season, Enunwa put his name among the elite receivers in Nebraska football history.

One of four team captains, Enunwa caught 51 passes for a team-high 753 yards and a Nebraska record 12 touchdowns. Enunwa closed his season with two touchdown receptions in the Gator Bowl victory over Georgia, including a school-record 99-yard touchdown reception. Enunwa’s 12 touchdown receptions bettered the previous school record of 11 by Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Rodgers.

The 753 receiving yards ranked ninth in school history, while his 51 catches tied for eighth on the NU single-season list. With 51 receptions in 2013, Enunwa has become one of just five players in school history with a pair of 40-catch seasons, joining teammate Kenny Bell, Johnny Rodgers, Nate Swift and Terrence Nunn. 

Enunwa started every game, and caught at least three passes in 12 of 13 games in 2013, including a career-high seven catches at Michigan. Enunwa also surpassed 50 receiving yards seven times during his senior season, capped by a career-high 129 receiving yards in the Gator Bowl victory. In addition to his receiving skills, Enunwa is known for his physicality as a perimeter blocker, helping fuel the NU rushing attack.

Enunwa and Bell teamed to give Nebraska one of the Big Ten’s top receiving duos, and also one of the most prolific receiving tandems in school history. In the process both players have made big leaps on the Huskers’ career receiving lists.

Enunwa finish his Husker career in the top 10 on both the receiving yardage and receptions list. Enunwa finished sixth in school history with 115 receptions, while his 1,526 yards rank seventh on the career list.
