Maurice Washington -- RB

No one can replace a stud like Devine Ozigbo, but as a freshman, Maurice Washington gained nearly 500 yards rushing and showed flashes of becoming the goto guy next season.

3

Dedrick Mills -- RB

Mills, a JUCO transfer, is expected to bring help to the Huskers running game. Teaming him up with Maurice Washington should give Nebraska a nice 1-2 punch.
