The Nebraska Cornhuskers (5-6, 3-5 Big Ten) battle #16 Iowa Hawkeyes (9-2, 6-2 Big Ten) on Friday afternoon in a conference clash. Nebraska fell to Wisconsin on the road last week, losing 24-17, their third consecutive defeat. Iowa squeaked by Illinois, 15-13, their sixth win of their past seven. The Cornhuskers upset the Hawkeyes last season, winning 24-17 despite Iowa being favored by 11 points in that game. Before that, the Hawkeyes had rattled off seven straight wins versus the Cornhuskers, so we’ll see what Friday’s contest bring us.
Will Iowa record their tenth win, or will Nebraska secure a bowl berth?

These conference rivals boast two of the best defenses in the country. Iowa allows the 15th-fewest yards, while Nebraska gives up the sevent-fewest. As a result, the total has been set to just 26.5 points, one of the lowest totals you’ll ever see.
Both schools average under 20 points per game, and this is going to be a grind all day long. Six straight games have gone under for the Hawkeyes, and expect very few points to be scored here.
Under 26.5 (-108)
