CBS Sports’ Tom Fornelli projects the upcoming season for the Big Ten and has Nebraska at 7-5…would you take that and run?

-Fornelli had Nebraska tied for 4th in the West, behind Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. He had Nebraska with a win over Penn State, but a loss at Rutgers (yikes)

-Also….if there is no college football…the NFL may consider putting some games on Saturdays…
