Rejoice, Nebraska fans; it's finally game week! Here's a look at 13 Cornhuskers who you should watch particularly closely in Week 1.
The Huskers will begin the 2011 season by taking on the Tennessee-Chattanooga Mocs, who went 6-5 in the FCS division last season. Nebraska should have a considerable talent advantage against the Mocs, and if all goes as planned, the Huskers won't have much of a problem beginning the year 1-0.
The September 3 contest will be offensive coordinator Tim Beck's first game calling the shots, and there will be several young players itching to get on the field and prove themselves to be capable difference-makers. The Blackshirts will be looking to touch up the depth chart in some areas, while in other areas, players will still be battling it out for starting spots.
Some players on the list have made recent pushes in fall camp, others have a lot to prove from a year ago and still others are newcomers that have a lot of hype to back up with tangible production.
These Huskers could end up being prime difference-makers for Nebraska in 2011.
