The Cornhuskers have looked decent at times this year.

After getting crushed by Ohio State, the team was able to bounce back from the loss and beat Northwestern in the next game in line.
Minnesota is one of the teams that is coming in as a surprise. The Golden Gophers have yet to lose a single game on the year and that includes a wild game against Fresno State that was in double overtime before they picked up the 3 point win. The last game out for the Golden Gophers saw them completely crush the Fighting Illini by a score of 40-17.
