The Indiana Hoosiers and Nebraska Cornhuskers meet Saturday in college football action at Memorial Stadium.
The Indiana Hoosiers look for another victory after winning three of their last four games. The Indiana Hoosiers have lost four of their last five road games. Michael Penix Jr. is completing 69 percent of his passes for 1,232 yards, 10 touchdowns and four interceptions. Penix has nine touchdown passes in his last four games. Whop Philyor and Peyton Hendershot have combined for 920 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Donavan Hale has 18 receptions. The Indiana Hoosiers ground game is averaging 142.5 yards per contest, and Stevie Scott III leads the way with 553 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Indiana is allowing 20.9 points and 297 yards per game. Reakwon Jones leads the Indiana Hoosiers with 32 tackles, Demarcus Elliott has three sacks and Jaylin Williams has one interception.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers need a victory here after splitting their last six games. The Nebraska Cornhuskers have won seven of their last eight home games. Adrian Martinez is completing 60.3 percent of his passes for 1,245 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions. Martinez has two or more touchdown passes in nine of his last 15 games. JD Spielman and Wan'Dale Robinson have combined for 815 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Jack Stoll has 15 receptions. The Nebraska Cornhuskers ground game is averaging 189.8 yards per contest, and Dedrick Mills leads the way with 350 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, Nebraska is allowing 27.6 points and 392.9 yards per game. Mohamed Barry leads the Nebraska Cornhuskers with 60 tackles, Khalil Davis has three sacks and Eric Lee Jr. has two interceptions.
The Hoosiers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss, 4-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 road games. The Cornhuskers are 5-16-2 ATS in their last 23 home games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 conference games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Cornhuskers last 5 games overall. The over is 8-3 in Hoosiers last 11 conference games.
The Indiana Hoosiers have split their last 10 games ATS as a road underdog. The Nebraska Cornhuskers have split their last eight games ATS as a home favorite. It's tough to really cap this game when you consider both teams are dealing with injuries to their starting quarterback. Both Penix and Martinez may not play due to injuries. With that being considered, I'll lean toward Nebraska at home in this toss-up, as home field advantage is the only edge we have with so many question marks at the moment.
