For Nebraska, this could be a year of high achievement out of the West Division. Here are five players who have the potential to make or break the season for the Cornhuskers.
Nebraska's offense begins and ends with the play of Ameer Abdullah. We're talking about a guy who finished last season with 1,999 all-purpose yards, the most in the Big 10. He'll have to have the same production this season, but it will be more difficult behind a weaker offensive line.
Gregory led one of the nation's top rushing defenses a year ago, but he'll have to play a big part in replacing former starters Jason Ankrah and Thad Randle this season.
Armstrong needs to prove he can be effective through the air this season. The offense isn't drastically held back without the passing game because of various other weapons, but having that additional option in the arsenal would only open up the attack.
Last season, Cooper led the 'Huskers with 91 tackles, and over half of those were solo. This season, he'll be forced to take on more of a leadership role in a secondary that won't be featuring much experience and was prone to giving up the big play a year ago.
Cotton is the only full-time starter returning from last season's offensive line, a position that is now being seen as a potential weakness for Nebraska. Without an offensive line that can hold its own, an automatic handicap is placed on this offense.
