The year is 2021. Nebraska football has just finished a season that saw them cruise through the first half of their schedule. After losing the opener to Purdue, they were able to reel off four straight wins.
Things were looking good in Lincoln. Then, the second half of the schedule reared its ugly head. After a homecoming win against Illinois, Nebraska struggled toward the last part of the schedule. After winning their contest against Rutgers, the program hit a roadblock.
Ohio State on the road was too much to handle, and Penn State on the road had the same result.
