Nebraska football win totals over/under updated after spring

0 Comments


After spring training, over/under win totals for college football teams were updated by the Action Network. The Big Ten projections were placed at X and Nebraska football finished fifth, tied with Iowa at 7.5.

Only Ohio State, Oregon, Michigan and Penn State had a higher total than Nebraska football. USC, Iowa and Washington also ranked at 7.5, followed by Maryland at seven.

Will Nebraska football win more than 7.5 games?

Interestingly, Nebraska football has the fifth highest number in the conference. The Huskers only won five games last season, but turnovers were a major problem.

They also lost four games by three points, including losses to Minnesota, Maryland and Iowa on game-winning field goals. Nebraska also lost to Wisconsin in overtime.

But with Dylan Raiola expected to be the starting quarterback this fall, it’s fair to be optimistic about the win total. Beyond that, Nebraska football has one of the most experienced rosters in the country – not just the Big Ten.

The offensive line returns most of its starters from last season and the defensive line did not lose any starters. That’s a good place to start. Nebraska has upgraded the wide receiver room and the secondary is one of the most underrated in the Big Ten, along with Tommi Hill, Malcolm Hartzog, Isaac Gifford and others.

Matt Rhule’s programs are also known for making a jump in the second year. With all that in mind, plus a favorable schedule with six of the first seven at home, Nebraska winning eight games isn’t a problem.

I’d be surprised if the Huskers couldn’t do that. They also haven’t made a bowl game since 2016. But unless there’s some alien force stopping the Huskers, I’d be feeling better lately.
