9. Nebraska (4-2)
Last week: 9. The Cornhuskers once again flirted with disaster Saturday as they slipped by Northwestern in the final seconds to claim a 13-10 victory. Nebraska’s two Big Ten wins over the Illini and Wildcats have been decided by total of seven points. Nothing is easy in Lincoln these days, and now Nebraska faces Minnesota on the road with some uncertainty about the status of its injured starting quarterback, Adrian Martinez.
Next up: at Minnesota, 7:30 p.m. Saturday, FS1.
