Early preseason magazines have Nebraska winning the Big Ten West in 2019…are the Huskers ready in Year 2 to live up to such expectations?

  • Athlon Sports and Street & Smith both picked Nebraska as the team to win the West, although they predict they’ll lose the championship game and end up in either the Holiday Bowl or Citrus Bowl
  • It’s going to be impossible for these expectations to slow down, so we might as well stop trying to fight them. We’ve also asked before so we’ll ask again: can a team that had 2 straight 4-8 seasons be in a mental position to be top dog so soon as people expect?
