The Skinny
Nebraska broke through with a Big Ten title in coach Will Bolt's second season and while there are some important roles on the mound to be filled next season the Cornhuskers have what it takes to repeat. Nebraska returns Freshman All-American Max Anderson and brings in a strong recruiting class it kept together through the MLB Draft.
