Could 2021 be the season the Scott Frost and the Nebraska football team need? They’ve got a decent spot in Bill Connelly’s SP+ preseason rankings.
Most of the headlines surrounding the Nebraska football program right now aren’t that great for fans of the Huskers.
The fact that Scott Frost and company are apparently being investigated by the NCAA is actually a pretty bad thing! Nebraska is being investigated by the NCAA and has won a total of 12 games over the past three seasons.
That’s not exactly a winning combination.
But, we’re just days away from the actual start of the 2021 Nebraska football season. Soon, Husker fans will be able to focus on what happens on the field as opposed to some drama that’s happening off of it.
As we get ready for the start of the 2021 season, what can we expect from the Huskers? Well, this might turn out to be a decent season. Not great or good, but decent.
After several rough years, that’d be nice to have, right?
Nebraska football: Huskers receive decent ranking from Bill Connelly’s SP+ preseason rankings
Where do the Huskers stand in Bill Connelly’s SP+ preseason rankings?
Well, neither the offense or the defense look particularly good for the Huskers, according to the SP+ preseason rankings. But, it’s possible that both the offense and defense will be good enough for the Huskers to have a solid season.
Nebraska currently sits at No. 32 in the SP+ preseason rankings, which isn’t bad at all. According to the preseason rankings, Nebraska’s offense is the 46th best in the country while the Huskers’ defense is ranked as the 29th best.
Again, that could be good enough for a solid season.
Now, by solid season, I’m not saying Nebraska goes out and gets 10 wins this season, that certainly seems like a pretty big stretch. But, the Huskers could have a winning season, which is something they’ve needed for a few years now.
