LINCOLN, Nebraska - Nebraska cornerback Kellen Huston was suspended one game Tuesday following his actions after Saturday's loss at Missouri.

Huston was caught on videotape toppling a Missouri fan following the Cornhuskers' 41-24 loss in Columbia. Hundreds of Tigers supporters had run onto the field at the end of the game.

"Kellen is very sorry that this unfortunate situation happened, and so are we," Nebraska coach Frank Solich said. "After viewing the film and speaking to people who were at the scene, I truly believe that Kellen did not instigate the situation and that he was simply reacting to what he saw as a dangerous situation coming right at him.

"However, Kellen knows that we do not condone our players striking another person, and he will be suspended for this week's game."

Huston will miss the Big 12 Conference matchup with Texas A&M. A 5-11, 200-pound junior, he has one sack among two tackles in six games.

"First, I would like to say that I sincerely regret what transpired Saturday evening in Columbia," Huston said. "My actions should not be a reflection on Coach Solich, the University of Nebraska or our football team. I would never intentionally bring harm to another individual."
