We are three-fourths of the way through the college football season. In many years, I would be lamenting how fast the season has gone. This year we are staring down the barrel of a third losing Husker season in a row. I’m going to enjoy all the positives I can during the next three Husker football games, but I doubt I will look back fondly on 2019 college football anytime soon.
LSU remains in the top spot after beating Alabama this past weekend. The Buckeyes now take the second spot with Clemson moving up to #3. Alabama fell to #4 but still looks to be in the playoff picture with three weeks left in the season.
Minnesota is now the second highest ranked B1G team at #7 after knocking off Penn State and ruining the Nittany Lions undefeated season. Penn State moved down a little (from #5 last week to #9 this week). Wisconsin (#17), Michigan (#19) and Indiana (#24) round out the Big Ten teams in the FanPulse poll.

Husker fans lost some confidence over the bye week as only 70.8% of Husker fans say they are confident in the direction of the program. This is approaching a season low (70.3%) that fans felt after the Colorado loss.
SBNation fans have a clear favorite in the Heisman race. If the season ended today and we were all voters, Joe Burrow would be the runaway winner.
