After tough weekend, Big Ten teams pivot forward

There are a couple of tough nonconference tests on the Big Ten schedule this week and rivalry games, too, but this week is more about recovery.

WHAT'S AT STAKE
Nebraska hopes to avoid taking even the slightest step back after a turnover-free, 55-7 win over Florida Atlantic in which the Cornhuskers rolled up 784 yards. McNeese State is using its opener in Lincoln to pay some bills — the Cowboys will earn $415,000 — and maybe settle on a quarterback.
