When Nebraska football fans look ahead to the upcoming season, they tend to look at the big games and dream about how Nebraska could win. The tricky part comes when trying to forecast upsets, games Nebraska should win but may fail to do so.
To be clear, I am considering an “upset” as a game where Nebraska is likely to be favored by most betting lines the week of the game. So, sure, guessing those lines is a bit of speculation this far out from the start of the regular season. But assuming I am right on the games Nebraska will be favorites in, here are where I see the most likely places NU could stumble in 2013.
