The Iowa Hawkeyes and Nebraska Cornhuskers face off on Friday in a Big Ten college football showdown at Memorial Stadium. Iowa has won the last six games played between the two teams. 

The Iowa Hawkeyes come into this game with a 9-2 record overall and they have gone 6-5 against the spread. In the last game against the Illinois Fighting Illini, Iowa’s offense scored 33 points. Quarterback Alex Padilla only completed six passes for 83 yards and a touchdown. Iowa is averaging 25.5 points while their defense is giving up 16.9 points per game. In this game Iowa needs to find success with their defense early in this game. If the defense finds success, they are going to find success in this game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Nebraska Cornhuskers who sit with a 3-8 record overall and they have gone 6-4-1 against the spread. In Nebraska’s last game against Wisconsin they were competitive but they were defeated by seven points. Nebraska is averaging 28.5 points while the defense is giving up 22.2 points per game. One big issue heading into this game is they will be without quarterback Adrian Martinez. The Cornhuskers will be turning to Logan Smothers who is young, but mobile and they are going to need him to have a big game in this one.

Nebraska is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games played on Friday. Nebraska is 6-1-1 against the spread in their last eight games as an underdog. The under is 4-0 in the Hawkeyes last four games as an underdog. 

This game is a bit hard to predict because we don’t really know what we are going to get out of the Nebraska quarterback position. I do think Iowa is going to make life tough on Nebraska’s offense. I’m not so sure Iowa is going to be great with their offense, but they are going to find enough to get the job done in this game. Back Iowa against the spread. I also believe this is.  going to be a lower scoring game and the under will cash
