2018 Husker Football Opponent Previews

Michigan State Spartans 2018 Football Preview

Expectations of a Nebraska upset should be tempered by the fact that the Spartans return just about everybody and could easily win the East division in 2018.

Illinois Fighting Illini 2018 Football Preview

Don’t fall for the trap of automatically placing the Illini in the Big Ten’s West cellar. This young team might be better than some fans and sportswriters want to give them credit for.

An Ohio State University Buckeyes 2018 Football Preview

Before the Zach Smith scandal broke, the Buckeyes looked like clear favorites to make it to the College Football Playoff. Now, however, it’s all secondary as we wait to see if Ohio State will do the right thing.

Minnesota Golden Gophers 2018 Football Preview

Aside from blowing out teams associated with Mike Riley, the Gophers weren’t very good last season. They might not be much better in 2018.

Northwestern Wildcats 2018 Football Preview

Can NW break NU’s undefeated-in-the-Windy-City streak in front of a hostile crowd in Evanston this year?

Wisconsin Badgers 2018 Football Preview

The Badgers might not just be the favorites to win the west, but also win in Indy and make the playoff.

Purdue Boilermakers 2018 Football Preview

Jeff Brohm’s Boilermakers won 4 Big Ten games last season; that’s one more than his predecessor did in three seasons. But can he build on this with a defense in rebuilding mode?

2018 Michigan Wolverines Football Preview

Dismiss Jim Harbaugh’s team at your own peril.

2018 Troy Trojans Football Preview

Troy lost several key pieces from a Sun Belt championship team that will need to be replaced, but the Trojans still might be the toughest non-conference opponent Nebraska will face this September.

2018 Colorado Buffaloes Football Preview

Wait. These guys still play football?

2018 Akron Zips Football Preview

The 7-7 Zips had their moments in November, but finished the season with a December to forget.
