The undefeated start of the Cornhuskers has conversations starting about them making a run for the College Football playoff.
However, with a full slate of Big 10 games remaining as well as the potential conference championship game, there is still a lot of work to be done for Nebraska to make it there.
Nebraska has used a pretty even combination of offense and defense to get off to their 5-0 start and now come off their bye week and travel to Indiana for another conference matchup.
Tommy Armstrong has been leading the way for the offense throwing for 9 touchdowns while running for 5.
The Cornhusker offense hasn’t been described as high powered but it is certainly well rounded.
5 different players have combined for 14 rushing touchdowns while 13 players have receptions this season but none with more than 13 catches.
The offense will have to go on without Jordan Westerkamp who will be out for at least this game with an injured back.
Nebraska’s defense has been excellent as well – giving up just 17 points per game this season. This will be just their second road game of the season and it will be against an Indiana team that beat Michigan State in overtime two weeks ago.
Indiana’s offense has some weapons that likely were the focus for the defense during Nebraska’s bye week.
Indiana uses a steady dose of both running and passing plays but have scored just 2 of their touchdowns on the ground.
I expect Nebraska’s defense to be able to keep the Hoosiers from making any big plays and force them to use long drives to beat them.
Losing their quarterback and running back to the NFL, the Indiana offense certainly needed players to step up.
Richard Lagow has stepped in well to the quarterback position while the Hoosiers have struggled to replace the production on the ground that they got from Jordan Howard last season.
2 rushing touchdowns through 6 games will not get it done and puts lots of pressure on Lagow to make a lot of plays.
The Nebraska offense is capable of putting up a bunch of points but Indiana did a decent job slowing down Ohio State last week.
Indiana’s overtime win against Michigan State isn’t proving to be that impressive as the Spartans fell yet again last week to BYU.
I would expect Indiana to try to slow the game down and limit the veteran Armstrong’s ability to get the Cornhusker offense rolling.

Free Week 7 NCAA Football Prediction
I think that this game starts slow as Nebraska comes back from their bye and the Hoosiers look to neutralize Armstrong. I think eventually the game should go over but the pick here is Nebraska.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Nebraska -3.0
I think the Nebraska defense will be too much for Indiana and they will force some turnovers.
I like the 1st half to go under and then maybe live take the 2nd half over to break the game over the full game total as well. Lots of money to be made here..
