We have reached week seven of the college football season which means most games at this point of the season are conference showdowns.
In this game it’s a Big Ten showdown when the Nebraska Cornhuskers make the trip to Ryan Field to take on the Northwestern Wildcats.
The visiting team has won the last four matchups between the two teams. Last year it was the Wildcats coming out ahead 31-24.
When the Nebraska Cornhuskers signed Scott Frost to be their coach this offseason, this isn’t the type of season they were expecting in year one.
They have lost all five games they have played, and they have only covered one of the spreads so far this season. The defense has been terrible and the offense hasn’t been able to keep up and it has led to the struggles.
In their last game against the Badgers the defense really struggled giving up 41 points and it led to a defeat. In this game they need to feel decent about their chances though after having some tough battles.
The Cornhuskers are led by Adrian Martinez at quarterback. He has thrown for 916 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions.
In this game they need him to play a good game but most importantly the defense needs to play a lot better early in this game and set a ton.
On the other side of this matchup is the Northwestern Wildcats who have had a terrible season but they do come into this game off a huge win against the Michigan State Spartans.
They got off to a strong start and finished strong on the way to a 29-19 victory. They aren’t a wonderful offensive team so the games they do win this year are going to be ugly, but it doesn’t matter how it happens, a win is a win on the scoreboard.
The one big problem the Wildcats have had this year has been running the rock. Last year they were a run first team but this year they are only averaging 77.4 yards per game on the ground.
In this game they need to establish the run early and this is a perfect game to do it against a suspect Cornhuskers defense.
They also can’t let the Cornhuskers offense get rolling early. They need to keep the confidence away from the Cornhuskers as they look for their first win.
