Offense upside capability.

I just think the offense is good enough to win those games based on what I have seen from those other teams. Let's face it, the B1G just isn't very good at all so it's no great accomplishment!

I have not been overly impressed by the other B10 teams.... Does OSU really frighten anyone? Nebrascal

I'm hoping the bye week and entering Big Ten play with help settle the young defense in a little bit and the offense takes care of business

I voted that way because when they run up against adversity they tend to do what is needed at least for the season... maybe not the playoff or the bowl but the season. GBR!

If they can make it to the Northwestern game undefeated in BIG 10 play that means they fixed a lot of their problems. if not... they will not win another game after Northwestern. & Bo will be gone.

Maybe right on loose the rest of their games, but I still think they will beat Michigan St.

With our Cosgrove like defense, there's only one way to vote on this!

Huskers are too young on defense this year to go undefeated until Michigan game

Like most, I don't think we beat Northwestern. if we do, our D is gonna have to show up at least enough to slow them down. Then it will be how well our Offense actually executes

Our defense is so bad, Illinois wlll run through us, and Northwestern will run us out of memorial stadium. I do think we will loose to Purdue or Minnesota on the road.

As much as it pains me to think it, I suspect Northwestern will rape the Husker defense without pause.

First game is always vanilla on offense. They will try to establish the run with basic run formations.

Slightly more runs than passes... if we are smart. Or it's going to be a long year.

Oline should dominate a transfer portal depleted Northwestern front and get the practice running the ball that is needed to win in the BIG.

They will play to win. The way to win is to grind Northwestern down.

I feel we should get a somewhat comfortable lead and start grinding out 1st downs via the run game. But if Oline under-performs and forgets to show up? All bets are off.

Show off our running back talent, as they won't stop us by the end of the game.

It will likely be balanced, but slightly more runs. Whipple likes running.

Whips will probably stick to a 54/46 ratio. I know they will be seeking as much balance as possible. An early lead would help balance things back to near 50/50. Early on as they go on attack, I think it may start out close to 60/40.

It'll be pretty close to a 50/50 split, but I'll give the slight edge to the run game. From what I've read our run blocking is better than our pass blocking right now. Much like the TO days I can envision a run heavy 1st & 2nd down to avoid 3rd and longs.

There will be swing passes and screens that will act as substitutes for runs, loosen up the D and spread the defense.

I struggled with this decision. We have talent, but that hasn't been our problem recently. Execution, special teams and the O-line have been our Achille's heal (in that order). If we can improve in 2 of these areas, it should be enough to get us 7 wins.

I think our offense will score a lot more points than last year and the defense will shut more teams down on 3rd downs.

I think we may have to win one of the last four tough games to be bowl eligible.

Tough teams on the schedule, and Scott has not proven his coaching abilities as of yet.
