(The Borges/Nussmeier saga has thrown my writing schedule off: here is a quick primer on Nebraska to satiate your hoops needs).
Nebraska Cornhuskers (8-6, 0-2)
Best Win: 60-49 vs. Miami (FL) - The Huskers rolled past a Miami team that was held to just 22 points over the first 30 minutes of game time.
Worst Loss: 87 - 74 vs. UAB - An even game over the first half, UAB blew the doors off Nebraska out of the half and cruised to an easy double-digit win.
The Huskers aren't an imposing team by any measure, but thus far the statistical profile is a lot kinder than last year's, in which Nebraska was sporting a lot of red on its Kenpom page (that's not a good thing).
Outlook: Kenpom has this as a four point Michigan win. While Michigan has under performed relative to expectations and is without Mitch McGary, this is still an absolute must win for the Wolverines.
