Updated Big Ten football projections after 9 weeks - Football Study Hall

The most likely Big Ten championship game is currently Nebraska vs. Michigan State, but Ohio State has decent odds of taking down the Spartans.

Nebraska is projected to win the Big Ten West.

Projecting the College Football Playoff race using advanced stats - SBNation.com

Nebraska has crept up to 13th in the F/+ rankings. The Huskers don't have much to offer beyond Ameer Abdullah's rushing yards, but that alone has gotten them into the top 30 of Off. F/+. Meanwhile, the defense is up to 13th thanks to a lack of true weaknesses and an occasionally great pass defense.

Only Oregon has a better projected percentage of going 11-1 than Nebraska. I love this advanced stat stuff!

Honestly, the Purdue game has me somewhat nervous. Purdue has been scoring a lot more points lately, they're improving, and if it weren't for the Huskers playing sloppy, horrid football at times against Rutgers last week, I believe this is a game we'd lose.

It is a clear trap game with Wisconsin coming up next after a bye week. It is also a game that Bo Pelini manages to lose once a year - a game that his teams shouldn't lose but inexplicably play like crap and lose anyway.

This team seems to have the right ingredients; star playmakers on both sides of the ball and better leadership than they've had in a while, but there is a reason Nebraska is generating nothing in the way of national buzz and it's that "Four Losses a Season" noose hanging around Bo Pelini's neck.

Purdue, Wisconsin, and Iowa stand in the way of our beloved Huskers making it to the Big Ten Championship game. There's still plenty of time for Pelini to get those four losses in.

College football - we wait for it to come around every August-September, then it goes by in a flash and another year is gone. Nebraska has a special year in front of them, IF they can survive November.
