The Big Ten Network teamed up with WhatIfSports once again to "predict" the outcome of the last fifteen years of B1G play had Nebraska been invited in 1996. The big mystery of the 1997 MNC: OSU (or M/OSU split). FWIW they call Nebraska finishing third in the division with three conference losses.
Obviously this sounds crazy, but this is the same company that predicted a 3-9 finish in 2010 with 23ppg, a 95% chance of losing to UConn and a 19% chance of victory at Purdue. Also the same company that had Tennessee besting us in the opening round of the 2011 dance.
