What We Learned: Week 7


— Nebraska might very well be a postseason team

Yes, yes, I know, Big Red fans wanted to fire coach Darin Erstad about three weeks ago. But you know what? That’s why you let the season play out and don’t jump to conclusions in early March. The Huskers improved to 4-1-1 in the Big Ten over the weekend with a home series win over Maryland.

Nebraska has a favorable schedule the rest of the way, too.
