Nebraska finished 8th in the Big Ten in football, just ahead of The Ohio State University. Nebraska didn’t do too badly overall in FBS, in the 30-40% of FBS teams. Now, it’s not good enough to lean on to save a 5-7 season for a bowl appearance, but it’s not terrible at all.

Ironically, Mike Riley’s contract does NOT have any APR based bonuses, so he receives nothing for this. Consequently, neither does Tim Miles, who runs the Nebrasketball program.
