If you're keeping track, the streak is at five. Nebraska has won nine or more games in five straight seasons since Bo Pelini took over as coach. The number matters because nine wins was the longtime standard: The Huskers won that many for 33 straight years between 1969 and 2001, setting an NCAA record. Can NU do it again in 2013?

Nine wins would also extend the Huskers' bowl streak to six and maybe put them in the hunt for a second straight Legends Division title. Maybe.
