Why Nebraska Will Win

The team keeps on pushing.

It might have had problems holding up against Michigan, but it gave Minnesota a rough game and had Wisconsin in big trouble last week. All were losses – the Huskers have lost five straight – but the want-to is still there thanks to an improving defense.

Nebraska will be plucky early, and the defense will keep the Hawkeyes from going on any big marches, but the O will run into a brick wall.

The Iowa defense will be suffocating against the run, a few field goals will be enough to set the early tone, and then it’ll be on to the prep work for the Michigan-Ohio State winner.
