    #3 Roy Helu Jr.

    Helu eclipsed the 100-yard rushing mark four times and ranked fourth in the Big 12 in rushing at 81.9 yards per game. Helu was also adept at finding the end zone, leading the team with 10 touchdowns, including three touchdown efforts against Florida Atlantic and Kansas. He also continued to be a receiving threat with 19 receptions, the third-highest total on the team.

    Helu opened the year in impressive fashion with 152 yards on 16 carries against Florida Atlantic. He ran for 95 yards and two touchdowns on five second-half carries and had three TDs in the 49-3 win. Helu accounted for 104 yards against Arkansas State with 60 rushing yards and four receptions.

    He continued his impressive play away from Lincoln with a career-high 169 yards on a career-high 28 carries at Virginia Tech. Against the stout Hokie defense, Helu averaged 6.0 yards per carry and had four runs of at least 20 yards. He also led the team with four catches for 33 yards.

    Helu led the team with 83 yards and two rushing touchdowns against Louisiana-Lafayette. Battling the flu at Missouri, Helu ran for 88 yards and a five-yard touchdown to help NU to a come-from-behind victory. He gained 68 yards against Texas Tech, before a nagging shoulder injury slowed him significantly the next two weeks, limiting him to just 12 combined carries against Iowa State and Baylor.

    He got back on track against Oklahoma, posing another impressive performance against a ranked team. Helu had 20 carries for 138 yards, including a career-long 63-yard run, in the defensive struggle. He also had three catches and accounted for 158 of the team's 180 total yards. Helu posted a second straight 100-yard rushing effort with 156 yards on a season-high-tying 28 carries at Kansas. He rushed for two touchdowns and recovered a fumble in the end zone for a third score. Helu also closed the game with 85 yards and a pair of scores on NU's final two drives of the game.

    I like the addition of Helu to the list. Nice write up as well, very insightful about the flu and shoulder injuries.
