After a tumultuous first season under Mike Riley, Nebraska football has some fairly high expectations heading into 2016. The Cornhuskers probably can't lose heartbreaking games with the regularity that they did in 2015, have one of the more talented rosters in the Big Ten West, and return a senior quarterback-receiver duo in Tommy Armstrong Jr. and Jordan Westerkamp.
Westerkamp has been Armstrong's favorite target over the last two years, with 109 total catches in 2014-2015 for a total of 1,665 yards and 12 touchdowns. Ahead of the combo's final year in Lincoln, Armstrong posted an Instagram tribute to Westerkamp, calling him a brother.
Nebraska opens up the 2016 season hosting Fresno State on September 3.
