Our 17 Husker storylines for 2017 continues with a look at the I-back battle. Nebraska lost its leading rusher from last year in Terrell Newby. The Big Red's most experienced returning back is Devine Ozigbo. The junior from Texas has 135 carries in his college career. NU's next two most experienced backs, however, don't even have half that many rushes combined.

Both Tre Bryant and junior Mikale Wilbon have had flashes of good play. Bryant ran the ball 43 times last year for 172 yards and scored two total touchdowns.

Wilbon, meanwhile, has just 24 carries in his Husker career and has yet to find the end zone. Nebraska begins fall camp on Sunday July 30.
