Nebraska football suffered a key loss in Week 10, see how it impacted the Huskers bowl projections.
There was a hope that Nebraska football would be bowl-eligible following the Michigan State game on Saturday, but the Huskers laid an egg, dropping the road game 20-17.
The Huskers are now 5-4 on the season overall and 3-3 in the Big Ten. Nebraska footbal trails Iowa by one game in the West division and is tied with Minnesota and Wisconsin for second place.
Maryland will come to Lincoln on Saturday. After that, Nebraska football has a road game against Wisconsin, as well as a home game against Iowa. So three chances to get a sixth win. None of them will be easy.
Here are the updated bowl projections for Nebraska football following Week 10.
Nebraska football Week 10 Bowl projections
The ESPN projections from Mark Schlabach and Kyle Bonagura both have Nebraska football going to a bowl game. Schlabach has the Huskers going to the Guaranteed Rate Bowl to square off against West Virginia. Bonagura projects the Huskers to face Miami in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.
247 Sports has an interesting bowl projection for Nebraska as it has the Huskers battling Oklahoma in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl. That would be a fun matchup and is now much more possible following consecutive losses from the Sooners.
Of course, the Huskers need to win No. 6. The best chance might be against Maryland on Saturday. Either way, Nebraska is going to have to beat a team with a winning record to reach bowl eligibility, which is something the Huskers haven’t done yet this season.
