Nebraska hasn’t had much to be excited about right now, as they are coming off losses to Creighton, Clemson, Virginia Tech and UCLA. Nebraska was somewhat competitive in the games, but didn’t threaten to win in most. The Cornhuskers just don’t have the horses to compete with a team like Kansas, which is playing on another level right now.
