Odds to Win 2020 College Football Championship
There is plenty of reason to believe that Scott Frost’s 2019 Nebraska Cornhuskers will not only be the 4-2 team that closed the 2018 regular season but much more. Cornhusker faithful that I am involved with are upbeat despite the school coming off their second straight 4-8 campaign. Frost, his staff and the returning and incoming player personnel are ready to return to their glory days under the guidance of Hall of Fame head coach Tom Osborne.
The expectations for the 2019 Frost troupe is more than just a Top-25 team but one that is not only equipped but positioned to challenge for a Big 10 West title.
Note that the Big Red haven’t finished a regular season as an AP Top-25 tram since 2013 when they earned a victory in the Gator Bowl over SEC and the then-No. 23 Georgia Bulldogs.
College Football National Rankings
Nebraska hasn’t been national championship relevant since 1997 under Osborne when the finished the season 13-0 as a member of the Big 12 winning the Orange Bowl in a dominating 42-17 victory over the SEC Tennessee Volunteers. Before the turn of the century under Osborne’s replacement, Frank Solich, the ‘Huskers finished 12-1 with a 31-21 Fiesta Bowl victory over the Vols. It was the last year that Nebraska football has finished a season with less than two losses.
The Osborne led 1997 Cornhuskers finished as the No. 1 team in the coaches poll while the Michigan Wolverines were the AP’s top squad. The 1999 Nebraska Corhuskers under the leadership of Solich was the last team to finish a season in the AP Top-5 behind No. 1 Florida State and No. 2 Virginia Tech.
I don’t know a single college football analyst that expects Frost to morph the 2019 Cornhuskers into what he did in his second season as the UCF bench boss. Taking a Lincoln team that finished 4-8 in his first campaign with the school to an undefeated Big 10 champion is a much more improbable task than it was in Orlando.
