Nebraska is considered to be one of the front-runners in the Big 10's West Division alongside Wisconsin. This will be the Cornhusker's fourth year in this conference, and this is probably the best they've looked heading into a season. Here are five reasons why Nebraska can come out of the West Division and win the Big 10.
Tommy Armstrong Jr. started eight games last season in the absence of Taylor Martinez, but the passing numbers simply weren't there. That will be changing this season, and we're going to see a much more complete quarterback.
The linebackers are the glue that holds a defense together. Nebraska returns three starters from a year ago, which will significantly help this defense as a whole.
If Armstrong does get the passing game going, he has a very deadly weapon to work with on the outside. Kenny Bell has a high ceiling; it's a matter of getting him the ball. If that happens, look out.
Nebraska's defensive line is primed to be one of the best in the Big 10 this season. The big boys up front will be able to break open the backfield and cause a lot of damage.
I cannot decide between Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon and Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah. Either way, expect the Cornhuskers' back to be a huge difference-maker this season, just as he has been in the past.
