The Greater Omaha Sports Committee is preparing to host the Outland Trophy banquet for the 17th year, with Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald the featured guest as the 2013 recipient.
The banquet is scheduled for Jan. 9 at the Downtown DoubleTree Hotel at 16th and Dodge Streets.
Donald was announced as the Outland winner at the Home Depot College Football Awards Show last week. The senior is the first player since Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh in 2009 to win the Outland, Lombardi, Nagurski and Bednarik awards in the same year.
In addition to Donald, former North Carolina State lineman Jim Richter (1979) will be the past winner honored.
The Outland banquet also will feature the Nebraska football senior honorees — Jeremiah Sirles (Guy Chamberlin Trophy), Ron Kellogg (Tom Novak Trophy) and Cole Pensick (Cletus Fischer Native Son Award).
