LINCOLN, NEB. (AP) - The Big 12 has suspended Nebraska linebacker Eric Martin for Saturday’s game against Missouri for a hit he put on Oklahoma State’s Andrew Hudson.

Commissioner Dan Beebe said in a statement Wednesday that Martin “committed a flagrant act of targeting an opponent with the crown of his helmet in violation of NCAA Football Rules.”

Martin blindsided Hudson with a block during Niles Paul’s 100-yard kick return in the first quarter of last week’s 51-41 Nebraska win. No penalty was called on Martin at the time.

Beebe said if a subsequent review of the game reveals a flagrant personal foul officials did not call, the conference can impose sanctions.

Nebraska coach Bo Pelini had no immediate comment.
