Any chance Nebraska loses?

They've sure looked beatable for 5 straight games, but are on a Notre Dame-esque streak of catching breaks.  

 

They've got two of the weaker B1G teams remaining in Minny and @ Iowa.

Anyone can lose.  Nebraska has gotten some nice breaks the past couple of weeks, but at some point you can't keep playing close games where you are always coming back.  Iowa could pull the upset; Minny, not so much. 

I'm sure Nebraska will be happy with the bid, though.  And to be fair, UM probaly should have blown the game yesterday save for that crazy last 20 seconds.

I can't be the only one that is frustrated that Nebraska keeps being on the good side of horrible calls. The terrible pass interference call on Michigan States and the obvious touchdown for Penn State that was called a touchback. It angers me.

That team is driving me nuts, they should've lost 5 conference games already considering they a) lost to OSU and b) were down by double digits to Wisconsin, Northwestern, MSU, and Penn State. How freakin lucky can you get?

Can't believe the refs took that late touchdown from Penn State yesterday

I don't wish injuries on any players, but Michigan's best hope of Nebraska losing is a Martinez injury.  Maybe he'll land on his elbow after one of his runs.

I'm thinking they are thinking there is no way they lose one of the last two.

I'm thinking they are thinking about WI and the Championship.

I'm hoping that means what that usually means.

They are the far superior team in their last two games and everything is going their way lately (Denard injury + realization Bellomy isn't ready for B1G football yet, Sparty no! + bad PI call and PSU 2nd half collapse + horrible no td call). I honestly don't see any way they don't get to go to Indy, especially seeing as even if one of their two opponents pulls out an upset, we'll have to play a near perfect game to beat Ohio ourselves.

Let's suppose Nebraska and Michigan both win out, sending Nebraska to Indy to play and lose to Wisconsin. Let's also suppose USC loses to ND and Oregon, but crushes UCLA. Let's also assume Stanford loses another game and Oregon wins out, going to the BCS championship game. Finally let's assume there are enough loses among the teams ranked 10th to 20th that Michigan rises to the low teens and becomes BCS eligible. What would be a better option for the Rose Bowl than having a de facto B1G Championship game!
