Nebraska’s kicking game is getting a much-needed boost.
Former LSU starting kicker Connor Culp has decided to graduate transfer to Nebraska to complete his career in college football. The news was confirmed by the Omaha World-Herald.
Culp was the starting kicker at LSU during the 2017 season. He converted on 11-of-16 field goal attempts and 20-of-23 extra point kicks as a freshman with the Bayou Bengals. However, Culp lost his starting job the last two years to Cole Tracy and Cade York.
Because of Nebraska’s kicking woes last year, Culp will likely be the favorite to win the starting job in Lincoln. Having an experienced kicker o the roster is a big deal for the Huskers after being forced to use six different kickers in 2019.
Among the six kickers, Nebraska converted 12-of-20 field goal attempts last season as the team finished 5-7. They also made 40-of-42 extra points.
