Former Nebraska offensive coordinator Tim Beck once said that fullbacks were dead in modern football. In a year where Wisconsin rushed for 581 yards against Nebraska and finished 15 spots ahead of Beck’s unit on the yearly rushing list. Oddly enough, Andy Janovich was also on Tim Beck’s roster that year. True to Beck’s words, Jano didn’t get a single carry.
Thankfully for Janovich, Beck was off ruining Ohio State’s MNC run in 2016 and new coaches Riley and Langsdorf were exhuming the fullback much to the delight of Nebraska fans. In the Southern Miss game, Jano was featured heavily in both the running and passing game.
