NU’s stocked offensive line looks for big jump in 2020
The Huskers return all five starters and over 200 games of experience within the offensive line room.
LINCOLN – For the first time in a decade, Nebraska football looks to have an offensive line ready to compete with the best of the best.
The Huskers return all five starters and plenty of options to supplant multiple roles in 2020, leading to some high expectations for the group.
NU ranked third in the Big Ten in rushing offense for the 2019 season, but seniors Brenden Jaimes and Matt Farniok are determined to improve on that number, focusing on the “mesh” of the offensive line unit and getting each player more in tune with the offense.
One move could boost that right away – coaches are looking at Farniok to slide into a guard spot, potentially opening up the right tackle position for one of several talented youngsters, including redshirt freshman Bryce Benhart.
With just three new players entering the fold in spring ball, the offensive line may not have quite the learning curve as some other positions without the 13 remaining spring practices, but the Huskers are still hoping to get those in whenever the Big Ten gives the green light for organized team activities.
