Pelini the odds on favorite?
While I might agree with Bo Pelini as the 3-1 favorite, I would guess that Turner Gill's odds might be better than 6-1 -- the same odds given to Boise State coach Chris Petersen. Just a guess.
This also begs the question: Is there anything you can't bet on these days?
Who will be hired as the next head coach of the Nebraska football team?
Bo Pellini 3/1
Turner Gill 6/1
Chris Petersen 6/1
Barry Alvarez 7/1
Paul Johnson 8/1
Greg Schiano 8/1
Brian Kelly 9/1
Jim Leavitt 10/1
Tommy Tuberville 12/1
Rich Rodriguez 12/1

Most suspect this will be the final game for Cornhuskers coach Bill Callahan and his staff. That decision will likely be announced Saturday. Now, it's time for some football.

Nebraska-Kansas State predictions
There are several other subplots to today's game. It's the last home contest for 29 Nebraska seniors and could very well be the last hurrah here for coach Bill Callahan and his coaching staff. Plus, here's guessing one or two Husker fans will remind Kansas State quarterback Josh Freeman of his recruiting flip-flot as he spurned NU to become a Wildcat. Should be interesting.

Obviously, things are much, much different this year. Kansas is off to an 8-0 start and has a defense that ranks among the best in the nation statistically. Nebraska put together a spirited effort last week in a 28-25 loss at Texas, but with the injury situation the Huskers are facing and the unknown of Ganz replacing the injured Sam Keller at quarterback, an upset bid seems unlikely.
