The Nebraska Cornhuskers’ 73-7 victory over the Idaho State Bengals was the most lopsided blowout for the Big Red in years. But where does that Idaho State team rank among the worst football teams Nebraska has ever played?
The following are the 10 worst opponents to ever face the Huskers. While the margin of Nebraska’s victory obviously weighed heavily into these rankings, the opposing team’s overall season record and strength of schedule was also used to determine how incompetent the team truly was. Although comparing teams across such different time periods is difficult, each team's ability (or inability) was judged relative to the other college football teams that year, since any team from the 1800's would obviously be overmatched by even the worst teams of today.
