It is often interesting to see what the other team’s coverage is like. The Huskers weren’t dominant against Illinois, but they played better than in their 3 losses.
The Northwestern game will be interesting, two teams struggling to find their way back to non-mediocrity.
Or perhaps struggling to get to mediocre in the Huskers’’ situation.
Middle of the pack would be a step up for us, sadly.
For both teams. The winner of the NU-NU game in two weeks has a fair shot at a bowl game.
Last weekend was probably the first time since 2020 that Nebraska, Northwestern and the Chicago Bears all won on the same weekend. Might be further back than that.
