Nebraska entered today's game against Michigan as a major underdog. The Wolverines were favored by 18 points in today's contest against the Huskers. Some thought that spread was too large and that Scott Frost's team, if Adrian Martinez played, would be able to cover it.

Those people were wrong - very, very wrong.

Michigan has absolutely dominated the first half of this game, scoring at will on offense and wreaking havoc on the Huskers' offense.

Martinez has been under pressure all game - the Wolverines have too many sacks to count, basically - and the Huskers have made some bone-headed mistakes, too.

It's Michigan 39, Nebraska 0 after two quarters.

Do the Huskers have any chance of doing anything in the second half? ESPN doesn't believe so.

ESPN's Football Power Index gives Michigan a 99.9 percent chance to win this game. That's as high as it gets at halftime.

A score prediction for Nebraska vs. Michigan.

Nebraska and Michigan are playing on FOX Sports 1. The second half should begin in about 15 minutes.
