I found this link pretty interesting.  You can look at current RPI and play around with "what-if" scenarios.

 

For instance, if Nebraska wins their final 3 games, their RPI is predicted to be 46th.

 

I then did the same thing but had the wins over Marist, Delaware State, and Stetson dropped because those teams all have an RPI over 300.

 

Nebraska's RPI, with 3 less wins, would be 25th!

This is pretty interesting.

 

The caveat is I'm sure it's also true - at least to some extent - if you drop the "worst wins" for other teams around us as well.

Another site with some odds on making the tournament.

 

If NU gets 22 wins, the chance of making it is 42.0%.

If 23 wins, it goes up to 80.1%.

24 wins puts it up to 96.1%.

 

This basically is what many on here have been saying.  It obviously depends on who those wins are against, and it depends on other teams, but basically 3 more wins and Nebraska should feel pretty good, 4 more and I don't see how the committee keeps them out.
