Cornhuskers among CFB's 'other guys'

Nebraska is among a group of teams crashing the College Football Playoff picture in what Ryan McGee is calling the "The Rise of the Other Guys." These teams are a rung below the big brand names that can and will push them in the playoff hunt. Flipping the field

Don't undervalue Nebraska's win just because Northwestern has struggled in September. Going on the road to face a stout defense, overcoming a couple early fumbles at the goal line and getting a conference victory is significant and was impressive for Nebraska. The Huskers are certainly trending in the right direction in Mike Riley's second year, and at this point they are looking like co-favorites in the Big Ten West with surging Wisconsin.

Kind of a bit awkward. Nebraska is playing Northwestern using a running back named Mikale Wilbon. Who's next AJ Adande?

Some old problems have popped up to hamper Nebraska in its Big Ten opener -- and the turnovers so far have been extra painful. The Huskers have fumbled on the goal line twice to let Northwestern and its stagnant offense hang around at halftime, though they still took a slim 3-point lead into intermission. Mike Riley won't be happy with the ball security, and the Huskers are surely going to hear plenty about it in the locker room.

Can Huskers exact revenge?

ESPN's Football Power Index indicates Nebraska will have an excellent opportunity to avoid a two-game losing streak in the series, having lost at home to Northwestern 30-28 last season.

Visit and commitment plans are continuing to shape up for No. 12 overall prospect Foster Sarell. The nation's No. 4 offensive tackle has already taken an official visit to Nebraska and said today that he will visit Notre Dame on Oct. 15 (Stanford game), Alabama on Oct. 22 (Texas A&M game), Washington either Nov. 12 or 19 (USC or Arizona State game) and Stanford in January. He said he wants to commit in November or December, which means he'll either commit to Stanford and take the January visit, or commit elsewhere and cancel it.

Fallica picks Northwestern straight up

No. 20 Nebraska at Northwestern (+7.5) is the perfect scenario for an upset, writes Chris Fallica. The Huskers come off a big home win, but they are 1-4 in road openers in the past five years. Best bets (Insider)
