The Huskers have no excuse for not being able to out-score at least 10 of their opponents, most of whom are average teams at best

May be one of the best offenses in the nation! As long as our Defense shows up, I expect nothing less than 10 wins! GBR

Given the schedule, anything below 10 would be a disappointment. Losses like those at OSU and B1G champ game last year would also be seen as failures.

Schedule.. loaded offense. with cross and abdula... thunder and lightening... Taylor will have some nice long runs.. POP-ooch's D should be faster and play loose vs. tight and robotic

12 Game Schedule - Huskers should be 7-0 going into Nov. Then they beat Northwestern, Michigan State, and Iowa at home - Should beat PSU on road, Mich is a toss up........

Easy schedule. Less than 10 is unacceptable for this team.

Schedule sets up nicely this year and with the talent back on offense along with modest defensive improvements equals no less than 10 wins.

Too much optimism this year with such a young defense. The team has heart, but luck was on their side last year. Too many close wins that easily could have gone the other way. GBR!

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.
