Nebraska Cornhuskers Football 2011: Top 5 Winners of Fall Camp Position Battles

There are just 21 more fall camp practices before the Nebraska Cornhuskers kick off the first game of the 2011 season, and here we'll predict the winners of five raging position battles.

If you are like me, you're already getting pumped up for game day in three weeks. But the Huskers are far from ready to play in a game, according to coach Bo Pelini.

Throughout the remainder of fall camp, all players will have their chances to impress coaches and win starting jobs. Nebraska has built remarkable depth at multiple spots during the Pelini era, and there are some positions that are being competed for more heavily than the others.

Those contenders will have to turn on the afterburners during competition in an effort to stand out.

Many may think one of the biggest battles will take place at quarterback between embattled incumbent Taylor Martinez and flashy freshman Brion Carnes, with dark horses in Ron Kellogg III and Tyson Broekemeier.

However, a reportedly rapid maturation process by Martinez has him entrenched as the starter at the moment, and there are five positions that will be even more hotly contested than quarterback during Nebraska's training camp.
