Once again, Nebraska's non-conference opponents had a fairly good weekend. If you want to complain about the non-conference schedule, just remember that Nebraska's current Strength-of-Schecule is 69 according to Sagarin's Raitings. Our next opponent Wisconsin? The Badgers are ranked 148 in SoS.

"It's a great time to have a bye," coach Dave Christensen said after the Cowboys lost to No. 9 Nebraska 38-14 last Saturday at Jonah Field at War Memorial Stadium. Nebraska moved up to No. 8 Sunday in the latest Associated Press poll. "We're 3-1. I like being 3-1. It's a pretty good position to be in."
