Lincoln, NE (AP) - Nebraska football player Spencer Long and gymnast Emily Wong are winners of the 2014 Wayne Duke Postgraduate Award by the Indianapolis Big Ten Community Partnership.

It's the second straight year Nebraska athletes have won both annual scholarships recognizing one male and one female Big Ten senior. It was announced Tuesday that Long and Wong each receive $10,000 scholarships.

Wong has a 3.92 grade-point average and plans to graduate in December with her nutrition science degree and psychology/child, youth and family studies minor. Long graduated in December with a biological sciences degree and minors in humanities in medicine and psychology. Long finished with a 3.792 GPA and plans to go to medical school.

The award is named for the former Big Ten commissioner who served from 1971-89.
