The Nebraska Cornhuskers won three of their first four games to start the 2019 season, and it looked like the Cornhuskers were well onto a successful season. Ohio State rolled into town, Nebraska was embarrassed, and it all went downhill from there. They lost five of the next six games, with the only win coming by three points over a terrible Northwestern team. The Cornhuskers finished the season with a 5-7 record. 

The Cornhuskers have made some changes to the coaching staff bringing in Matt Lubick to be the offensive coordinator. Adrian Martinez is going to have a battle on his hand to keep the starting job with Luke McCaffrey also trying to get the job. Out wide JD Spielman has taken a person leave which leaves the wide receivers in a tough spot. 

On defense, the Cornhuskers are switching to a 3-4 defense, and although they have playmakers there has to be some questions about how long the adjustment period will take, especially without any spring ball.

Pick: Taking a look at the non-conference schedule, Cincinnati is the big test there, but that game is at home. The Cornhuskers will have to play Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin, and Minnesota, all are going to be tough battles, but playing Minnesota and Penn state at home should help. 

It’s going to be a tough schedule, but this total is too low. Look for the Cornhuskers to finish with eight wins, and that will be enough to go over the posted total.
