LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- After his 10-tackle performance against Michigan, Nebraska linebacker David Santos says he's glad he took a redshirt year in 2011 so he could learn all he could about the Cornhuskers' defensive system.

When he stepped on the field Saturday, he didn't look like an ordinary first-time starter. He made 10 tackles, including one for a loss, in the 21st-ranked Cornhuskers' 23-9 victory. Monday he was chosen as a Big Ten co-freshman of the week.

Coach Bo Pelini said the best thing about Santos is that he's only going to get better.

Nebraska (6-2, 3-1 Big Ten) plays at Michigan State (5-4, 2-3) this week.
