As a full touchdown underdog at home, Wyoming felt the disrespect in Week 1 and responded with a win.
The Cowboys will have a tougher test than Northern Illinois this week and will have to go on the road as they face Nebraska in Lincoln.
Nebraska overcame a slow start in Week 1 and the emotion of playing without their punter – who died this past offseason – to roll in a victory over Fresno State.
It took three overtimes but Wyoming found a way to win against Northern Illinois in their season opener.
The challenge will be even greater as they head to Lincoln to take on Nebraska. Nebraska entered this season as many team’s sleeper to surprise teams in the Big 10.
While Wyoming is no Big 10 opponent, you can bet Nebraska is not taking Wyoming lightly.
Former Nebraska defensive coordinator Craigh Bohl now coaches for the Cowboys and will have some familiarity of what it is like to play in Lincoln.
Wyoming’s Week 1 victory was impressive but Bohl is well aware of the step up from a MAC opponent to a Big 10 opponent.
After playing in Week 1 late into Sunday morning due to weather and a late start, the Cowboys will now have to travel to Nebraska and play a game at 11am local time. It will feel like a noon start for the Cowboys as they come east a bit but nevertheless, early games can be tricky.
You can imagine the Cornhuskers will want to get off to a quick start against the Cowboys after getting a slow start in Week 1.
Wyoming will need to avoid that otherwise the game could be over before they even know it started.
Some pegged Nebraska as the team to watch for before this season started but an unfavorable schedule could limit them.
However, this game against Wyoming is one they certainly have marked down as a win.
Yet, they shouldn’t take the Cowboys lightly or they could find themselves scrambling to make a comeback late in the second half.
The leadership of Nebraska’s team should help avoid that but a look ahead game with Oregon coming to town next week could be problematic in keeping the Cornhuskers motivated.
Coaches are well aware of their players looking ahead to games on their schedule and surely do their best to prevent it.
But, how exciting is it to play Wyoming at 11am local time when Oregon is coming to town next week for a nationally televised game?
I think Nebraska has the talent and experience to get the victory in this one but Wyoming should keep it closer than people expect.

Tommy Armstrong is experienced in games of all sorts so I think he will do enough for Nebraska to get the victory. However, I am expecting a slow start in the morning game to keep Wyoming in the ball game.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Wyoming +24.5
Morning games always make me nervous to take the favorite. Wyoming has an opportunity to play a Big 10 opponent so they’ll have no problem staying focused.
The Cowboys keep this one tight before Nebraska pulls away.
