Jennings, a senior from Amarillo, Texas, also played in every tournament in 2015-16, and managed two top-20 finishes. He earned a 75.13 stroke average in 31 appearances.

Wendling played in all but one tournament for the Huskers, and produced a 75.71 stroke average in 28 rounds. The sophomore from Effingham, Ill., managed five subpar rounds and a pair of top-20 finishes.

The Huskers open their 2016-17 campaign Sept. 11-13 at the Badger Invitational at University Ridge Golf Course in Madison, Wis.
