LINCOLN, Neb. -- Detroit Lions rookie Ndamukong Suh had his No. 93 jersey retired during a halftime ceremony at the Colorado-Nebraska game.

Suh was The Associated Press national player of the year last season and the Huskers' most decorated defensive player. All major award winners have their jerseys retired, although their numbers remain available to active Huskers.

Suh's name appears along with other honorees on the north end-zone wall.

Wearing a Detroit Tigers baseball cap, Suh said it was a blessing to be honored along with the 16 other players who have their jerseys retired. He thanked the fans for their support when he played at Nebraska and now that he's with the Lions.

Last spring, Suh pledged $2.6 million to the school, the largest contribution ever by a former player.
