We continue our 17 Husker storylines to know for the 2017 Nebraska football season with what role sophomore I-back and Albion native, Wyatt Mazour, will play for the Big Red this upcoming season.

In his redshirt freshman season a year ago, Mazour only saw playing time in Nebraska's blowout win over Wyoming.  But the Albion native turned heads at Nebraska's spring game.

Mazour led the Huskers in both rushing yards with 57, and totaled the most receiving yards with 78.  He also added a score late in the game.

While Mazour may not be a big feature in the Huskers' rushing game come the fall, the walk-on from Boone Central High School could compete for playing time on special teams, specifically as a kick or punt return specialist.
