LINCOLN — Nebraska doesn't want to be reliant on its high-powered offense again this season, even though the Huskers return nearly all of the heavy hitters who combined to form one of the nation's most productive lineups in 2012.
Last season, when it finished fourth in the Big Ten, Nebraska was eighth nationally in scoring (7.1 runs per game), eighth in batting average (.315) and 21st in home runs (47).
