Much tougher than yesterday but I am going with Kevin Seibel.
I'm going with Monte Anthony, a RB from the early Osborne years. Injuries kept his career from being anything to write home about, but he played varsity ball as a true freshman when that was absolutely unheard of.
Think about it - nearly a decade after Anthony, guys like Irving Fryar and Turner Gill still played only on the freshman team.
Monte Anthony obvious choice.
Definitely a lack of depth at this number. I'll throw in a few honorable mentions from the last couple decades:
LB Chris Weber: Walk-on out of Elkhorn, NE. Academic All-American, was a steady backup and then a starter as a senior. 15 tackles against Ohio State in 2017.
LB Adam Ickes: Walk-on out of Page, NE. I'm making my way through the Callahan years, and the guy had a nose for the ball in 2005.
Another small-town Nebraska guy who was pretty good was Ken Kaelin, a FB who spent most of his career backing up Tom Rathman.
Kevin Seibel made some big FG for Nebraska.
That is why I went with him. I remember a 52 yarder.
Had a good season in 86.
