5. Nebraska RB Terrell Newby
Newby has just 74 yards on 20 carries over the last two games, but he is averaging 5.3 yards per carry this season and he’s also a factor in the passing game for Nebraska (10 receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown).
The Cornhuskers’ ability to get back on track will be partially driven by Newby and the ground game, and if Minnesota is able to limit his impact they will gain an advantage.
