Nebraska followed up its demolition by Wisconsin with a terrible half against Ohio State, and was rescued by an injured quarterback opening the door for a huge comeback.
NU will have a ton left to play for against Iowa, even with the divisional title out of reach. The difference in Nebraska’s postseason is likely a New Year’s Day bowl berth versus an invitation to the Meineke Car Care Bowl. That reality, combined with a brand-spanking new trophy being handed out, should be enough to Nebraska to come out firing on senior day.
Whether it will or not, though, is an open question.
