LINCOLN — This is the month of Bo Pelini's best wins and bitterest defeats. A month where his teams rise to occasions — and occasionally crash to earth.

October. A Pelini-coached Nebraska team has never made its way out of this month without a loss. Since 2008, the Huskers are 12-7 in October. And Nebraska often suffers a loss of such bafflement and inverted awe — the 9-7 bumbleroosky against Iowa State in 2009, the 48-17 beating at Wisconsin in 2011, the 63-38 boat race at Ohio State last year — that it throws fans (and the team) into a midseason quest for answers.
