Which College Football Team Has the Worst ATS Record in 2022?

Two FBS teams are tied for the worst ATS record at 0-4:

  • Nebraska
  • UTEP

En route to 0-4 ATS, Nebraska failed to cover against Northwestern in Week 0, North Dakota in Week 1, and Georgia Southern in Week 3 as Scott Frost sat on the college football hot seat and was ultimately fired and paid a gigantic buyout.
