Don’t let the Buckeyes’ 11-9 record fool you. They are a top 30 RPI team and have played a much tougher schedule than the Huskers so far. Ohio State is a talented team top to bottom and Nebraska is going to have to shake off their tendency to go dormant in the second half to get back into the “W” column.
