Iowa is thisclose to completing a perfect regular season. It hasn’t always been pretty but you can’t argue with the results.
Host Nebraska is looking to disrupt their playoff plans and become bowl eligible to close the season.
You can argue all you want about their schedule but nobody has beat the Hawkeyes this season and most of their opponents have not come close. I don’t think they are a great team but that is more and indictment of the B10.
The Hawkeyes have already clinched a spot in the B10 title game but it they want to have any chance of a special season they need to enter that one still undefeated.
There is really nothing special to what the Hawkeyes want to do. They want to run the ball, play some defense and not make mistakes. Then when you do, pounce all over you.
It’s not exciting but it works. Vintage New York Giants style.
They might have to up their game if they want to complete for the league title but against a Nebraska team that has struggled to make the big play in the big moment their plan is probably adequate to close out this record season.
The Cornhuskers got rid of Bo Pelini because they were looking to take a step forward not a step back. That hasn’t been the case in year one with Mike Riley at the helm.
Things definitely could have gone in a different direction with five of their six losses by five or less points. I don’t want to say it was his fault but when things are that tight maybe coaching can make the difference.
In this potentially final game of the season they need their to star, athletic QB Tommy Armstrong to play like one.
He has four three hundred plus yard games this season and probably needs another, plus a couple of plays with his feet for Nebraska to get the W.
Even though they have played a lot of close games the Huskers have not been a good spread team this season. Here is a spot where the oddsmakers are expecting it to be close.
