By Kyle Kensing, 2 days 19 hours ago
In a sport where non-conference agreements are brokered two decades into the future, uncertainty looming less than two months before college football's scheduled kickoff feels so unsettling. Indeed, the global COVID-19 pandemic has shrouded so much of our lives in the unknown, and it might dramatically alter the college football season. Until then, however, the schedules are made and we can...

Nebraska Football: Breaking Down the Cornhuskers' 2020 Trap Game

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 week 3 days ago
Last year, I predicted that Northwestern would be the team that snuck up and bit the Nebraska Cornhuskers when they least suspected. They came close. The Wildcats fell 13-10 on a last-second field goal during what many probably expected to be a get-right game following the Huskers' 48-7 dismissal by Ohio State.   Looking ahead to the upcoming season and this exercise is even more...

Nebraska Football: Why the Cornhuskers Need to Lock Down Tight End Recruit Thomas Fidone

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 2 weeks 19 hours ago
With JD Spielman opting to not play his senior season in Lincoln, there's been some recent shuffling at wide receiver for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. One move that appears to signify how Matt Lubick's crew is changing is Chris Hickman's shift from tight end, a spot appropriate for the 6-foot-6 redshirt freshman, to wideout.   Now that Hickman is ready to wreak havoc along with...

By Steven Lassan, 2 weeks 2 days ago
Ranking the Big Ten coaches is no easy task. Penn State's James Franklin takes the top spot for 2020, but Ohio State's Ryan Day and Michigan's Jim Harbaugh aren't far behind. The next tier of coaches features Iowa's Kirk Ferentz, Wisconsin's Paul Chryst, Minnesota's P.J. Fleck, and Northwestern's Pat Fitzgerald. Purdue's Jeff Brohm and Nebraska's Scott...

Nebraska Football: What a Hypothetical, Big Ten-Only, 12-Game Schedule Could Look Like for the Cornhuskers

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 2 weeks 4 days ago
Whether you're a fan of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Ohio State Buckeyes, Wisconsin Badgers, or any Big Ten conference team, the allure of a college football season is palpable right now.   Sadly, this may very well be a pipe dream. But with the NCAA green-lighting a two-week "minicamp" stretch prior to normal fall camp activities, a glimmer of hope lives, however briefly....

Big Ten Football 2020 Predictions

By Steven Lassan, 3 weeks 1 day ago
The 2020 Big Ten predictions begin with a couple of familiar faces atop the divisions: Ohio State and Wisconsin. The Buckeyes and Badgers have combined for 11 out of the 18 appearances in the conference title game since its inception prior to 2011. Penn State should be Ohio State’s top competition in the East, with Michigan up next in third. Minnesota isn’t far behind Wisconsin,...

Big Ten Football 2020 All-Conference Team

By Steven Lassan, 3 weeks 3 days ago
The 2020 All-Big Ten team is led by 15 selections from Ohio State, with Michigan up next with 12. Iowa and Penn State headline the next tier with 11 picks. Those four teams are the only ones to hit double-digit picks, but seven other programs had at least seven selections on the 2020 All-Big Ten squad.   Athlon Sports has released its top 25 for 2020. Now, it’s time to take a look...

Nebraska Football: 2020 Cornhuskers Season Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 4 weeks 1 day ago
Prior to last season, Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos said that six wins and a bowl would be reasonable for coach Scott Frost’s third team. The response from most was disbelief: Only six wins?        As it turned out, Moos was too optimistic. The Huskers failed to achieve bowl-eligibility for a third consecutive season. Part of the problem was the health of...

Nebraska Football: What the Cornhuskers' Wide Receiver Room Looks Like After JD Spielman's Departure

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 month 18 hours ago
With JD Spielman entering the transfer portal, the Nebraska Cornhuskers see more than the loss of a 14th player with remaining eligibility after the end of the 2019 season.   Losing Spielman, who hauled in at least 800 yards in each of the last three seasons, will hurt, but the team already had to operate as though he wasn't returning in the fall. The undersized wideout headed home to...

Nebraska Football: Why No One Actually Expects the Cornhuskers to Return to 1990s Form

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 month 6 days ago
Regardless of if you view the Nebraska Cornhuskers football program from within the state's borders or from a national perspective, let's be clear: the Huskers simply aren't relevant on the grandest stage right now. The number of years without a conference championship continues to increase. There's a current streak of seasons without a postseason bid.   You'd have to...
