    Default Ranking the Toughest Games on the Cornhuskers' Schedule (7. Oct. 12 at Minnesota)

    per Athlon:

    7. Oct. 12 at Minnesota

    The Golden Gophers are being served up the perfect opportunity to jump a gassed bunch of Huskers. Regardless of their record, Nebraska will have faced Ohio State and a Northwestern team that always provides a challenge.

    Much like several other teams on this list, Minnesota is scrambling for signal-caller stability. Zack Annexstad and Tanner Morgan went back and forth during the spring, but a lasting starter might not even be named by mid-October. Keep in mind both played in Frost's first win last year, a 53-28 affair.

    Goldy and crew feature a trio of wide receivers that can assist, but with poorly thrown balls, that won't make a difference. They also tout legitimate enforcers on defense, including do-it-all playmaker Carter Coughlin. He's shown the size, speed, and agility to make an impact, but he can't do it all himself.

    Bulletin board material right there. We're not getting enough respect.
    Attention: If the above comment sounds puzzling, adjust your sarcasm setting and try again.

    They are the most-hyped, over-confident 4-8 team I've ever seen.

    I really, really, REALLY want to beat Nebraska in 2019.

    Gophers are their 7th hardest game! Hey, we made single digits!

    "Zack Annexstad and Tanner Morgan went back and forth during the spring, but a lasting starter might not even be named by mid-October. Keep in mind both played in Frost's first win last year, a 53-28 affair."

    So it's their fault Minnesota lost that one. Not the 53 points that were scored against them.

    Oh yeah, I want Tyler Johnson to light them up like Randy Moss now.
    You guys are playing like this is some throw away game up in Rochester.

    I like Nebraska fans in general, but Frost rubs me the wrong way the same way many here aren't big PJ fans. I'm hoping for reinstating the gopher beat down, that will be viewed as the watershed moment that led to a coach getting fired, when we play them this year.

    Apparently reason is buried next to humility...

    While I would relish in Gophs getting a 3rd Nebby HC fired, it won't happen next year or the year after IMHO. Frost will get ample chance to succeed there.

    If we are there 7th roughest game it’ll make a lot of sense when they go 5-7

    Frost probably gets 6 years regardless of how bad they are...because if Frost fails the Nebraska football program as it was known until about 2002 is dead.

    It would be like the gophers hiring tony dungy. If the gophers hired dungy he would get 6 years even if they were 0-12 each season.

    Firing frost to me would signal Nebraska can’t be fixed by anyone.

    These guys are absolutely drunk if they think MN will be the 7th toughest team. More like 4th at worst and 2nd at best. Minnesota man handled Purdue and WI last year.

    By ESPN FPI, the percent chance NEB has to win the following games are such:

    In order from best to worst (easiest opponent to toughest).

    South Alabama - 98%
    NIU - 91%

    Illinois - 75%
    NW - 72.7%
    Indiana - 72.3%
    Wisconsin - 66.6%
    Purdue - 64.3%
    Colorado - 64.3%
    Maryland - 64.1%

    Iowa 51.4%

    OSU - 42%
    Minnesota - 39.5%



    By ESPN, Minnesota will be their toughest game with only a 39.5% chance of a Nebraska win.
