Iowa vs. Nebraska, 11.26

Caleb Tannor is coming back for a fifth season on Nebraska's football team. 

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound outside linebacker announced his decision Monday via social media. 

A native of Stone Ridge, Georgia, Tannor in 2021 started every game and recorded a career-high 33 tackles, including three in a season-ending loss to Iowa. He made two sacks this season and has 7½ for his career. 

In a Nov. 6 game against Ohio State, Tannor tied his career high with five stops while recording a sack for a loss of 9 yards. 

A consensus four-star recruit, Tannor played in every game in 2020 with five starts at outside linebacker. He also played in every game as a sophomore, earning the first four starts of his career. 

Tannor's return, along with Garrett Nelson and Pheldarius Payne, gives Nebraska's defense some punch on the edge of the line.
