Nebraska coaches, players and fans may be optimistic, but ESPN’s Football Power Index — which predicted NU’s losing season in 2017 — has forecasted the same thing for the first year of the Scott Frost era.For 2018, FPI ranked NU 50th among FBS teams with a projected record of 5.5-6.5. That’s the same record FPI projected last season, which sent off alarm bells for the year to come, especially among coach Mike Riley’s biggest critics. Nebraska finished 4-8.Frost, fresh off an undefeated season at Central Florida — which smashed ESPN’s FPI record projection of 7.6.-4.7 in 2017 — has no such critics at NU.
