Stats Six-Pack: Nebraska-Ohio State

November 2, 2016

Nebraska proved something last week by going into Madison and taking the Badgers into overtime. Not just to itself or its fans, but college football at large. The Huskers, frequently dismissed at 7-0, hardly dropped in the rankings after dropping to 7-1.

The same scenario might not exist this Saturday in Columbus. The task is tougher and the margin for good will without a good win is slimmer. Should Nebraska lose, even close, to Ohio State, it becomes pretty easy to look at the Huskers as a 7-win team that has lost its two toughest games.
