Nebraska is in trouble in the second game of the Scott Frost era. The Huskers, who fell in the season opener to Colorado, are struggling in a major way against Troy this afternoon.

Troy is leading, 17-7, at halftime. The Huskers have been without freshman starting quarterback Adrian Martinez. Nebraska's offense has had major issues both securing the football and moving it down the field.

Can the Huskers pull off a second half comeback?

ESPN's Football Power Index has made its prediction.

The FPI is confident that Troy will be able to hold on in the second half. It gives the Trojans a better than 50 percent of doing so.

ESPN's FPI gives Troy a 62.0 percent chance to win the game.
