By-The-Numbers: Nebraska

By-The-Numbers hits the road in search of a top-10 non-conference road win, about as rare as a Hale-Bopp comet sighting. But UW fans, don't dispair! The numbers tell us the Huskies have a fighting chance. It won't be easy. When you're on the road looking for a win in Lincoln, Nebraska, the odds are against you. But at least the NU fans will offer you a beer to cry in if you need one.
