Nebraska’s postseason absence is well known. Unfortunately, one stat paints an even bleaker picture than it already is for the Huskers.

Nebraska and Kansas entered Week 10 as the only Power 5 teams not to go to a postseason bowl game since 2017. That includes the likes of Rutgers, Illinois, Northwestern, Vanderbilt and Colorado.

Kansas upset No. 18 Oklahoma State 37-16 to get its sixth win of the season in Week 10 to become bowl eligible.

Kansas has not won more than 5 games in a season since 2008 when the Jayhawks finished with an overall record of 8-5. From 2009 to 2021, Kansas accumulated an overall record of 28-125.

Nebraska suffered its sixth loss of the season, losing 20-13 at home to Minnesota. Minnesota accounted for 33 more total yards than Nebraska 300-to-267. The Huskers are set to go on the road to take on No. 4 Michigan in Week 11.

After Nebraska started the season with a 1-2 record, Scott Frost was fired while in his fifth year. Passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach Mickey Joseph took over as the interim head coach.

From 2017 to this season, Nebraska has accumulated an overall record of 22-42. Moving forward, the Huskers will need to win out in order to hit the traditional 6-win mark needed for bowl eligibility.
