Cornhusker Rooting Interest

(40)Iowa – (32)Nebraska.  Nebraska Obviously.  All other picks are on the assumption of a Nebraska win.

(8)Stanford – (25) Notre Dame.  Get ND out of the top 25.

(11) Michigan State – (29) Minnesota.  Michigan State is too far ahead of Nebraska for us to catch up.  Minnesota is just three spots ahead.  So we need a Sparty victory.

(12) Arizona State – (34) Arizona.  An Arizona victory could slingshot the wildcats past Nebraska.  So lets root for Arizona State who would likely stay ahead of Nebraska even with a loss.

(22) UCLA – (23) USC.  UCLA is an opponent of Nebraska.  One of the two will fall behind Nebraska.  A UCLA win will also help Nebraska’s strength of schedule.

(20) Louisville – (28) Cincinnati.  Both sit ahead of the Huskers and a loss by either would likely drop them behind Nebraska, although not guaranteed if Louisville loses.  So we will root for a BearCat loss.

(51) North Carolina – (24) Duke.  A North Carolina win likely throws the ACC Coastal division into a 5 way tie.  Thats just too much fun to pass up.  It also drops Duke behind the Huskers.

(54) Mississippi St. – (26) Ole Miss.  A Bulldog win puts the Rebels behind Nebraska and makes Mississippi St. bowl eligible.

(44) Georgia Tech – (27) Georgia.  A Yellow Jacket win puts the Bulldogs behind the Huskers.  (I’ll still root for the Dawgs!!!)

(47) Texas Tech – (30) Texas.  A Red Raider win puts the Longhorns behind the Huskers.  Plus its Texas.  Need I say more.

(65) Marshall – (31) ECU.  A Herd victory puts them in the C-USA Championship and puts the Pirates behind the Huskers.

(5) Missouri – (21) Texas A&M.  A Tiger win could …. COULD … put the Aggies behind the Huskers.

(38) Michigan – (3) Ohio State.  Catch 22.  A Wolverine win improves the Husker’s strength of schedule but could push them past the Huskers.

Penn State – (15) Wisconsin. A Penn State win improves the Husker’s strength of schedule.

(101) Wyoming – (64) Utah State. strength of schedule.

(122) Southern Miss – (106) UAB. strength of schedule.

(104) Purdue – (64) Indiana. strength of schedule.

(81) Arkansas – (17) LSU.  A Razorback win (would mean Les Miles has passed away) could ….. COULD get Nebraska past LSU.

(105) USF – (19) UCF.  A Bulls win (would mean the Apocalypse is nigh) could …. COULD get Nebraska past UCF.
