The Cincinnati Bearcats will be on the road for a matchup against the Nebraska Cornhuskers in a non-conference clash.  This game will take place at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, NE. Cincinnati finished the 2019 season with an overall record of (11-3), while Nebraska went (5-7).  Let’s take a closer look at both of these programs.

Cincinnati will be looking to sustain their success from last season, as the Bearcats return their star quarterback from last season.  Desmond Ridder passed for over 2,100 yards a season ago, while throwing 18 touchdowns and also adding 650 yards rushing.  This is a team that went 4-1 last season during non-conference games, which includes a 38-6 bowl win over Boston College.  If Cincinnati wants to get a win in the Big Ten environment, the offense will need to be balanced.  The offense will need running back Gerrid Doaks to take over as the lead guy in the backfield for 2020.  The defense was impressive last season, allowing less than 21 points per contest.  This is a defense that will be taking on a program that averaged 28 points on offense a year ago.  For more on Cincinnati, check out the team preview.

Nebraska started the season well a year ago, but once competition started to improve, the program started to pick up losses like wildfire.  Nebraska does have a new offensive coordinator this season, while also having a quarterback competition for 2020.  Adrian Martinez was the main guy a season ago under center, but his job is anything but safe to this point.  Martinez totaled 10 touchdowns and 9 interceptions last season.  Running back Dedrick Mills is back for another season with the program, as he rushed for 745 yards and 10 scores during the 2019 campaign.  The defense looks to be different for the 2020 campaign, after finishing the 2019 season allowing nearly 28 points per contest.  For more on Nebraska, check out the team preview.

Overview: Cincinnati has opened up as a touchdown underdog for this game at Nebraska.  Cincinnati has a coaching staff that is familiar with one another, while Nebraska has made some changes.  Coach Luke Fickell has experience with Nebraska, from his time at Ohio State.  Cincinnati has the upper hand at quarterback and I like for Cincinnati to come in with confidence for this contest, as the Bearcats should be coming off 3 straight wins to open the season.  I’m going to take Cincinnati to cover this spread on the road.
