5 unexpected players who could shine in Nebraska football's game against Bethune Cookman

The Cornhuskers could have some new stars show up when they take on FCS school Bethune Cookman on Saturday.

The Cornhuskers take on Bethune Cookman on Saturday. Check out who we think is going to end up shining against the FCS team.

1

Noah Vedral

The Nebraska football coaching staff has said, more than once, that they want to start getting Vedral involved in games. They can play him in four games without losing a year of eligibility. There are five games left in the regular season. It makes sense that a game against an FCS opponent would see his first action of the season.

2

Maurice Washington

While it won't be a surprise if Washington has a good game, he might get a season high in carries against Bethune. It seems as if the coaches are starting to really understand how to use the freshman and that could be bad news for the FCS opponent.

3

Wyatt Mazour

The coaching staff has clearly been looking for a way to get Mazour more involved. So far, he hasn't been too involved. This could be the week, either in receptions, or carries that the walk-on gets a chance to shine.

4

JoJo Domann

After starting the fall as a darkhorse candidate, he hasn't been able to stay healthy as a big contributor. It appears he is healthy now as he's listed on the newest depth chart as the number two outside linebacker. Could a big game be on the way?

5

Dedrick Young

Dedrick Young is only guy on the list who might be out of the game by the third quarter for good. Young has had a bit of an up and down season. At the same time, he played very, very well in the second half of the game against Minnesota. It's possible he can build on that performance and finish the season strong starting with a dominating performance against Minnesota.
