Why Nebraska Will Win
The Huskers lost seven straight and eight of the last nine. That one win …
How? Iowa was miserable from three against a Nebraska defense that’s not all that bad at clamping down on teams at the perimeter. There’s no fear at bombing away from three, the O can get back in games in a hurry, and it leads the Big Ten in turnover margin – it just doesn’t give the ball away.
Why Iowa Will Win
The Nebraska defense, overall, just isn’t good enough.
Iowa went dead-cold in the loss to the Huskers, and it was still close late in the 76-70 loss. As long as the offense can keep the ball moving and make the extra pass like it usually does, the points will come.

What’s Going To Happen
Iowa won’t be that bad from three again like it was in Lincoln, and the defense will show up after getting its doors blown off by Purdue on Wednesday night.
