OVER 8.5 Wins (-125)
Second-year head coach Scott Frost is expecting big things. This is a man who has proved it in Central Florida, going 13-0 as a player while in Nebraska, also as a head coach and knows how to win. For to nine wins is asking a lot from a group that only had four final period, but coach Frost is the guy, if anybody can do it.
Sophomore quarterback Adrian Martinez is in the top five in the Heisman Trophy Discussion, also he must be, as he had a time on a team that is poor. He was 12th in the nation in combined passing and rushing yards and you’ll be able to anticipate that statistic to enhance. Martinez also passed for the most yards.
This Nebraska crime won 456 yards a game while setting up 30 points per match. The team returns seven starters on both offense and 13 novices. Wide receiver JD Spielman was the quickest player to get to 100 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards and is rear.
Even the’Huskers defense definitely must fill several holes but they did make strides and never stop in the second half of the year, especially on Frost. Nebraska gave up just 23 points a game in comparison to 37 in its first seven matches. Coming in to bolster the protection, Nebraska has impact freshmen like safety Myles Farmer end Ty Robinson and interior linebacker Nick Henrick.
Despite the fact that they only won four matches, the’Huskers gave an unanticipated game that was tough to Ohio State , just losing by five points. They get exactly the Buckeyes in your home, there is a game Martinez eyeing. He had three touchdowns in the Horseshoe and outplayed standout quarterback and Heisman finalist Dwayne Haskins.
That’s the game Frost,” Martinez and the state of Nebraska can’t await. It is more than fair to think that Nebraska could be 4-0 going into their game of the year.
Aside from playing with Ohio State, the Cornhuskers program is favorable as they do not need to perform Michigan State, Michigan or Penn State. The team they perform on the street will be. They also on the road get Illinois (OVER/UNDER is 4.5), Colorado (3.5 is O/U), Purdue, with a new quarterback, and Maryland, whose OVER/UNDER is simply 4. Nebraska also has very winnable home games vs the Jaguars of Northern Illinois and South Alabama.
I’ve got them locked to seven wins together with three other potential wins, so they have the firepower and training to get to nine, if they can stay healthy.
1 – South Alabama
2 – Colorado
3 – Northern Illinois
4 – Illinois
5 – Ohio State
6 – Indiana
7 – Purdue
8 – Maryland
9 – Iowa
1 – Northwestern
Two – Minnesota
3 – Wisconsin
