After an awful start to the season, the Nebraska football team needs a win to get back on track.
So, week zero sucked. The Nebraska football team hit the road and got hit straight in the face with an awful loss against the Illinois Fighting Illini. If Huskers head coach Scott Frost somehow wasn’t on the hot seat before the season started, he should be on it now given how poorly Nebraska played last week.
But now the Huskers get to play at home and against an opponent who should be significantly outmatched.
This is the sort of game that Frost and Nebraska need to bounce back.
Nebraska football storyline to watch: This game won’t salvage the season, but it could potentially ruin it
Look, a win here doesn’t fix what happened last week. A win against Fordham doesn’t erase the fact that Frost and the Huskers lost to Bret Bielema and the
But a loss would certainly effectively ruin the remainder of this year. If Frost and the Nebraska football team somehow end up losing to the Fordham Rams, of all teams, go ahead and expect the remainder of the year to be horrific because there’s really no way to come back from that.
There’s no way Frost can afford to lose this game. Nebraska absolutely must beat Fordham. Otherwise this year, and also Frost’s time leading things in Lincoln, might as well be over.
Nebraska football prediction:
But, let’s look at things objectively for a second, this is a contest that Nebraska should realistically be able to dominate. Fordham does a really good job of throwing the ball around and the Huskers can’t look past the Rams’ passing attack.
That said, the Huskers should be too talented to win this contest. Nebraska should be too physical up front for Fordham to really thrive in Memorial Stadium.
Go ahead and expect the Huskers to win this one. And given how last week went, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Nebraska come out with something to prove. That sort of motivation plus the talent differential between these two teams should lead to the Huskers winning this one by a large margin.
Score: Nebraska 45, Fordham 13
