Honors & Awards
Receiver Tim Marlowe battled through an injury-plagued 2012 season to remain a key part of an outstanding group of Nebraska receivers. The 2012 season capped a productive career for Marlowe both as a receiver and a key special teams contributor.
The 5-10, 175-pound Marlowe was a fixture on special teams each of the past four seasons, and he was a regular in the receiving rotation the past three seasons. In 2012, Marlowe suffered a clavicle injury in the opener against Southern Miss, forcing him to miss the next five games, before returning for the second half of the season.
A native of Youngstown, Ohio, Marlowe was one of 17 Nebraska seniors to participate in the bowl game as a graduate after earning his degree in communication studies in December.
Marlowe nabbed a career-high four catches for 44 yards and his first career touchdown against Northwestern, while making three catches for 24 yards at Michigan. He added single receptions in five other games. On the ground, Marlowe had a 39-yard run to the Michigan State 1 that set up a field goal to give NU a 10-0 lead. Marlowe also had a 23-yard run at Michigan and averaged nearly 11 yards per carry. He also had a season-long 28-yard kickoff return against Michigan.
