It was gutting news for Nebraska’s community. Pensick played at the university from 2009 to 2013 under Bo Pelini’s successful run in the Big Ten.
Pensick played both center and guard for the Huskers, helping establish Nebraska’s offense in 2013 as one of the premier running units in college football.
