If you pay attention to recruiting, you may have known who Dejon Gomes was prior to the 2009 season, but you probably didn't know that he would make as much of an impact as he did last year.
The six-foot JUCO transfer turned a game around late in Columbia, Mo., with an interception return to the five yard line of the enemy.
Likewise, the small defensive back also stole the ball from Texas wide receiver Dan Buckner late in the game in the Big 12 championship to give Nebraska a chance to go to the Fiesta Bowl.
So who will be this year's dark horse contributor? Will he come on defense or on offense? The following are ten viable dark horse candidates for Nebraska's 2010 season.
Remember dark horse candidates won't include players like Lavonte David, Jermarcus Hardrick, or Niles Paul, these are players that aren't supposed to make an impact but will in a surprising fashion.
Enjoy the list and add to it as you see fit.
