Pickering was money at the end of last season. As a true freshman, he nailed his final 10 field-goal attempts, including three in the snow against Michigan State for a 9-6 upset win. The soft-spoken sophomore enters his second year with more confidence in himself, and from the coaching staff. With the schedule this year, Nebraska has a chance to double its win total from last season, or get back to nine wins for the first time since 2016. Pickering making field goals may mean the difference between wins and losses, with a slew of powerhouses headed to Lincoln.
