2014 Husker Opponent Previews


With Mike ailing with the flu, Cobby previews the Iowa Hawkeyes, a team that some people think will win the West division. He has a few thoughts on that.

Minnesota Golden Gophers 2014 Football Preview

Minnesota may not impress you with their star rankings, but they're well-coached. And if opponents don't bring their "A" game, the Gophers can make you pay. Nebraska found that out the hard way last season.

Wisconsin Badgers 2014 Football Preview

Melvin Gordon and a powerful Wisconsin offensive line return. But there are lots of questions everywhere else with the 2014 edition of the Badgers.

Purdue Boilermakers 2014 Football Preview

Purdue needed a last minute interception against a really bad 1-AA team to avoid a winless 2013. Will 2014 be better? Maybe.

Rutgers Scarlet Knights 2014 Football Preview

With Paul James and the entire offensive line returning, expect Rutgers to try to run the ball. But has Rutgers figured out their problems in the passing game - on both sides of the ball?

Northwestern Wildcats 2014 Football Preview

The NU/NW series has featured three pretty close games. Northwestern may be looking to extract some revenge when Nebraska visits, as the Wildcats may be putting their most experienced team yet on the field this season.

Michigan State Spartans 2014 Football Preview

The Spartans finally found some semblance of an offense in the second half of 2013. That catapulted Michigan State into the Rose Bowl and a top five ranking. But with three defensive standouts headed to the league, can they repeat in 2014?

Illinois Fighting Illini 2014 Football Preview

Josh Ferguson is the lone known quantity of star power for Illinois. But there are enough new pieces on both sides of the ball to give Illinois fans some reason to hope.

Miami Hurricanes 2014 Football Preview

Led by running back Duke Johnson, the 'Canes offense should be good if they can find consistent quarterback play. But the defense remains a work in progress.

Fresno State Bulldogs 2014 Football Preview

Derek Carr is off to the NFL. Two of the top three receivers from last year are back. So what will the Bulldogs do on offense? How about raid the ACC for a mobile quarterback? That might work.

2014 McNeese State Cowboys Preview

McNeese State will revamp their offense from a pro-style attack to running the zone read featuring former K-State quarterback Daniel Sams. But no solution to a porous defense is in evidence.

Preview: 2014 Florida Atlantic Owls

FAU had a legitimate defense in C-USA last season, especially against the pass. The run? Not so much.
