The Nebraska Cornhuskers will travel to Camp Randall Stadium to take on the 15th ranked Wisconsin Badgers this Saturday afternoon in College Football action.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers lost their 4th straight game and dropped to 3-7 on the season after being defeated by the 5th ranked Ohio State Buckeyes, 26-17, on November 20th. Nebraska trailed Ohio State by just a 23-17 margin at the end of the 3rd quarter, however, the offensive could not get anything going late in the game and could not fight back after a 46-yard FG by the Buckeyes made it a two-possession game with just 1:29 left in regulation. Nebraska won the turnover battle by a 2-1 margin, however, was outgained by the Buckeyes by a 495-361 margin in the loss. Leading the way for the Cornhuskers was QB Adrian Martinez who completed 16 of 31 passes for 248 yards, 1 TD, & 1 INT while also rushing for 51 yards & 1 TD.
On the season, Nebraska is averaging 28.6 ppg on 459.2 total yards per game (264.8 passing yds/g; 194.4 rushing yds/g). Offensively, Nebraska has been led by QB Adrian Martinez who has completed 61.3% of his passes for 2512 yards, 13 TD, & 8 INT while also rushing for 502 yards & 12 TD on 124 carries. In the backfield with Martinez is RB Rahmir Johnson who has 495 rushing yards & 4 TD on 112 carries while also hauling in 16 receptions for 197 yards & 2 TD. The top receiving threats for the Cornhuskers have been Samori Toure (33 rec, 718 yards, 4 TD), Austin Allen (29 rec, 404 yards, 2 TD), & Omar Manning (24 rec, 331 yards, 2 TD).
Defensively, Nebraska is allowing their opponents to average 20.9 ppg on 363.5 total yards per game (231.0 passing yds/g; 132.5 rushing yds/g).
The 15th ranked Wisconsin Badgers won their 6th straight game and improved to 7-3 on the season after defeating the Northwestern Wildcats, 35-7, this past Saturday. Wisconsin dominated defensively against Northwestern and had no trouble cruising for victory in the 2nd half after going into halftime with a 21-0 lead. Wisconsin outgained Northwestern by a 497-239 margin and forced 4 turnovers in the victory. Leading the way for the Badgers was RB Braelon Allen who had 173 rushing yards & 3 TD on 25 carries.
On the season, Wisconsin is averaging 26.2 ppg on 390.0 total yards per game (162.9 passing yds/g; 227.1 rushing yds/g). Offensively, Wisconsin has been led by the RB duo of Braelon Allen (118 att, 834 yards, 9 TD) & Chez Mellusi (173 att, 815 yards, 5 TD). QB Graham Mertz has completed 58.7% of his passes for 1505 yards, 8 TD, & 9 INT. The top receiving threats for the Badgers have been Danny Davis III (27 rec, 418 yards, 2 TD), Kendric Pryor (10 rec, 328 yards, 2 TD), Jake Ferguson (31 rec, 298 yards, 2 TD), & Chimere Dike (17 rec, 225 yards, TD).
Defensively, Wisconsin is holding their opponents to an average of 14.6 ppg on 216.3 total yards per game (155.7 passing yds/g; 60.6 rushing yds/g).
The Cornhuskers are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games as a road underdog, however, are just 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The Badgers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 November games.
Wisconsin has really turned the tables over the past few weeks, led by arguably the best defense in the College Football, however, this is still an offense that has some question marks, especially at the QB position in which Graham Mertz is completed less than 60% of his passes and has more INT’s than TD’s. Nebraska is only 3-7 on the season, however, they have been competitive for the most part in Big Ten play with single digit losses to Michigan, Ohio State, & Purdue, and as I think the Nebraska defense will be able to keep this one a low-scoring game, I think the play here is to take the Cornhuskers and the points. Good Luck!
