Nebraska Football Knee-Jerk Reactions: Wisconsin

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 year 6 months ago
At this point, it’s kind of impressive. Amazing, really. How many ways do you find yourself in position to win a football game only to have it ripped from your mitts in the coldest way possible? Gut punches, one after another and the Wisconsin Badgers are the owners of the fourth against the Nebraska football program in six games. If the Huskers didn’t have bad...

Just How Good Can The Iowa Hawkeyes Be This Season?

By Rob Donaldson, 1 year 6 months ago
Don’t look now, but the Iowa Hawkeyes have quickly jumped out to a 5-0 start after going into a hostile environment and beating then-No. 19 Wisconsin by a final score of 6-10 last Saturday. Although it wasn’t the most impressive of victories, it showed just how capable this team is at beating quality opponents. C.J. Beathard, who has been the rave of the season thus far in...

Week 6 College Football Picks Against the Spread

By Braden Gall, 1 year 6 months ago
8-0 last weekend. Yup, I'm going to soak that one in. The worst part of going 8-0 is knowing that it will never happen again — sort of like being a Mets fan this October. But I digress. On to Week 6 where emotional letdowns could be the theme. Keep an eye on the dogs this weekend. Last Week: 8-0Year-to-date: 20-11 Cal (+7.5) at UtahUtah is a fundamentally sound...

Northwestern Wildcats vs. Michigan Wolverines Preview and Prediction

By J.P. Scott, 1 year 6 months ago
Let's be honest, nobody saw this game coming. Back in August, few people outside of the Northwestern locker room expected anything other than maybe mediocrity from the Wildcats in 2015. On the flip side, there may have been excitement for the Michigan season, but more for what the future held than what 2015 would bring. On Saturday, Northwestern and Michigan will square off in the Big...

Wisconsin Badgers vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers Preview and Prediction

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 6 months ago
Saturday’s meeting in Lincoln between Nebraska and Wisconsin was billed in August as one of the Big Ten’s must-see matchups and potentially an elimination game for the West Division. That preseason storyline hasn’t quite panned out as expected, but there’s still plenty of time for the Badgers and Cornhuskers to climb back into the West Division title picture. Both teams...

Minnesota Golden Gophers vs. Purdue Boilermakers Preview and Prediction

By J.P. Scott, 1 year 6 months ago
The 2015 season has not gone the way Jerry Kill and the Minnesota Golden Gophers had planned or even hoped thus far. Both losses have come to ranked opponents by a combined score of 50-17. All three of Minnesota's wins were by exactly three points over teams from the Group of 5. Needless to say, they are not the Big Ten contenders and national players we thought they might be heading into...

Illinois Fighting Illini vs. Iowa Hawkeyes Preview and Prediction

By Robert A. Boleyn, 1 year 6 months ago
Two of the Big Ten West's most surprising teams of 2015 will line up to face one another on Saturday, as the No. 23 Iowa Hawkeyes play Homecoming host to the Fighting Illini of the University of Illinois. A quick review of the records might indicate that both these teams have surpassed even the wildest of their own expectations. And to a certain point, that would be...

Indiana Hoosiers vs. Penn State Nittany Lions Preview and Prediction

By Kevin McGuire, 1 year 6 months ago
The Indiana Hoosiers are coming off a wildly entertaining game against defending national champion Ohio State, and it should have caught the attention of Penn State. The Hoosiers pushed the Buckeyes nearly to the limit last week but now must regroup on the road this week in front of a homecoming crowd for an early kickoff. Penn State's offense has struggled to find itself with...

Maryland Terrapins vs. Ohio State Buckeyes Preview and Prediction

By Chip Minnich, 1 year 6 months ago
As it pertains to the 2015 Ohio State Buckeyes, I have been asked the following question: "Are these 'escapes' grating at you or do just think it's the growing pains associated with the development of THIS team?" I can only answer how I see it, and I see it as a matter of growing pains. Allow me to elaborate. Ohio State is 5-0, with very unsatisfying...

Former Nebraska Coach Tampering With Current Cornhuskers' Players' Minds Identified

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 year 6 months ago
What’s that old saying? If there’s smoke there’s fire? You’d swear something was ablaze over the past day or so in Lincoln. It turns out that rumors of former coaches dumping metaphorical toxic waste into the Nebraska football locker room are true according to former Cornhuskers' defensive lineman Jason Peter. Lincoln radio station 93.7 The Ticket’s...
