Result:
LOSS

Northwestern's defense is looking a lot like last year's powerhouse 'D,' allowing 14 points per game over the last three contests. Northwestern is on a 9-4 run UNDER the total and 32-16 UNDER after allowing 14 or fewer points in the last game. On offense, season-opening starting QB Hunter Johnson (4 TDs, 4 picks) has been benched, backup Andrew Marty (2 TDs, 0 picks) is injured, so sophomore QB Ryan Hilinski (no TDs) will start. Northwestern is 17-8 UNDER the total after getting 200+ yards rushing in the last game, plus 25-11 UNDER versus pass defenses that allow 62% completions or higher. Nebraska's defense is also playing well, allowing 14 points per game over the last four contests. That's even more impressive when you look at the last two games, losing 23-16 to No. 3 Oklahoma and 23-20 in OT to No. 20 Michigan State. Nebraska is on a 9-2 run UNDER the total and is also 22-10 UNDER as a home favorite of 7.5 to 14 points. These teams played a 21-13 game a year ago, 13-10 two years ago, and this shapes up as another fierce defensive duel. Take the UNDER for a Max Play.
