The Nebraska Cornhuskers are in the second year of the Mike Riley era and it certainly looks like they are confident about their chances going into the 2016 season. They finished the year with a surprising win over the UCLA Bruins in the Foster Farms Bowl and did so with a season-high 326 rushing yards.
Quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. returns for his senior season while Jordan Westerkamp leads a talented wide receiver corps. Senior linebackers Josh Banderas and Michael Rose-Ivey should be their biggest players on the defense.
Prediction: 10-3 (8-1), Big Ten West Champions, Orange Bowl
