After getting off to an impressive start against Colorado on Saturday, Nebraska suffered a collapse in the second half. Losing on the road to another ‘Power Five’ program isn’t necessarily a bad loss, but it did raise concerns from its fan base.
The Cornhuskers entered this year with high expectations under Scott Frost. All the hype surrounding the program came crashing down when they lost to the Buffaloes.
Sophomore quarterback Adrian Martinez looked great on the road in Week 2, but even his bounce-back performance wasn’t enough to lead Nebraska to victory.
With the first two weeks of the season in the books, Sports Illustrated gave out its concern levels for notable programs that have suffered at least one loss.
Sports Illustrated has its concern level at 5/10 for Nebraska, which isn’t too bad when you consider the circumstances.
Nebraska still has a chance to right its season, mostly because it has a real talent at quarterback in Adrian Martinez, although he played a so-so game against South Alabama. It’s up to Frost, the former Huskers quarterback himself, to get more consistent play from his quarterback. Nebraska’s season may depend on it.
The Cornhuskers have a chance to redeem themselves on Saturday when they host the Northern Illinois Huskies. It’s the final non-conference game on their schedule.
Nebraska fans – are you concerned about how the team looks so far?
