Pickin’ On the Big Ten, Week 1: Appalachian State and Other Disasters

Florida Atlantic at Nebraska

Bo Pelini

This was going to be a battle of the Pelini brothers, but then Carl Pelini’s life turned into something out of an Elmore Leonard novel. So now instead of taking on his brother, Bo Pelini will take on Charlie Partridge, who was one of Bret Bielema’s top assistants at both Wisconsin and Arkansas. Partridge was a great hire for FAU, a Florida native who has honed his coaching craft in two of America’s toughest conferences and was already known as a fantastic evaluator of Florida prep talent.

None of that is going to help him here. The Owls are going to have their bones ground into dust.

Pick: Nebraska 55, Florida Atlantic 7
