ESPN Stats & Information

Cornhuskers favored over Illini

Despite a 2-2 record, our Football Power Index likes Nebraska's chances to get over .500 when it heads on the road to face 2-1 Illinois. A loss for the Huskers could make head coach Mike Riley's seat even hotter.

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Here's how a former Big Ten assistant assessed 12 of the visiting locker rooms in the league. It's definitely a problem. Illinois = pathetic. Purdue = pathetic. Nebraska = OK. Wisconsin = OK. Iowa = OK. Michigan = below average. Michigan State = pathetic. Minnesota = nice. Maryland = pathetic. Northwestern = pathetic. Penn State = OK. Ohio State = below average.
