Team preview: Nebraska
The Blue Ribbon College Football Yearbook previews the 2007 Nebraska Cornhuskers, exclusively on Insider.
Nebraska won the 2006 Big 12 North championship, but no one associated with the program is celebrating. Oh, don't get them wrong. The division title is nice. But there's so much more to accomplish. The Cornhuskers lost the conference championship game and the Cotton Bowl. They finished 9-5, unranked and never really considered among the nation's elite teams. Once a no-brainer for the top 10 and a national title contender every year, Nebraska had to settle instead for merely being the big dog in the Big 12's weaker half. And that's not enough.
