What If Wednesday: What if Nebraska hadn’t choked the ending of the Iowa game in 2019 and got to a bowl game?

-The summer series returns with a painful question! Nebraska, of course, was 5-6 entering that game, and needed a win to get to a bowl game. The game was tied, late 4th quarter, with Nebraska on the move at midfield…but then Iowa got the ball back and won in regulation, ending Nebraska’s season

-Several reasons why that is a ‘what if’: Nebraska could have ended their losing streak to Iowa, and could have gotten to a bowl game in Frost’s 2nd year, which is the goal Bill Moos had before the season that Frost scoffed at. Instead, we now enter the 4th year of Frost without a bowl appearance, after skipping last year, too
