Nebraska senior running back Dedrick Mills was named today to the Doak Walker Award watch list.

Mills made a significant impact in his first season for the Huskers last year.  He led NU with 745 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns. 

Mills earned honorable mention All-Big Ten accolades from both the coaches and media.  His junior campaign was highlighted by a 188-yard performance against Wisconsin. 

This year marks the second time Mills has been on the preseason Doak Walker list.  He was also on it following his freshman season at Georgia Tech.
