This just shows how bad the coaching has been at Nebraska. To have 3 of the top 17, is pathetic and embarrassing. A well prepared team loses none of those 3 games. Hell, I’d argue that even a bad coach should have won all of those games. NU has just been putrid. It will take big game wins to turn Nebraska's fortunes around nationally. Going 8-4 and losing to all the good teams you play won’t get it. Have to start beating Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State. Need to win one of these types of games soon.
CFP era. I believe that pre-dated the CFP.
Appalachian State was FCS, not G5, when they became the first FCS team to beat a ranked FBS school in 2007. Worst P5 losses to FCS teams would be a different list.Appalachian State is far better than any of the teams Nebraska lost to, at least in the past decade. That happened in 2007, or something like that.
From what I remember, NIU was considered to be a pretty good team over the years back then with some history of punching above their perceived weight.Am I the only one who feels like the Georgia Southern loss was worse than the Northern Illinois one?
We lost to Northern Illinois because we threw two pick-six's in the 1st quarter. We lost to Georgia Southern because we were incapable of remotely slowing down their offense. Northern Illinois beat us but only managed 213 yards of total offense, while Georgia Southern flogged us for 642. Northern Illinois felt a tad fluky, Georgia Southern felt like we deserved to lose.
