BIG 12 Bowl Analysis | Upon Further Review
NEBRASKA – KANSAS STATE The North boils down to this. If Nebraska wins, they go to the Big 12 championship. If they lose, they still go to a bowl. If K-State wins, they go the Big 12 championship. If they lose, their season is over. And, since the game is at Nebraska and since NU will be favored (I’m guessing by 6.5), the odds are NU will win and will represent the North. Their final game is against Colorado. If the Huskers win that as well, they will be 9-3 and 6-2 going into the Big 12 championship game. And what that will mean is that after all the confusion of the North, it will have ended pretty much exactly as many people expected – at least with respect to NU winning it with a decent record.
