The Nebraska Cornhuskers and Michigan Wolverines face off on Saturday in a Big Ten college football showdown at Michigan Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2021 it was Michigan that secured the 32-29 victory. 

Nebraska comes into this game with a 3-6 record and they have gone 3-6 against the spread. In the last game against Minnesota, Nebraska was up 13-0 in the first half, but in the second half they were outscored 20-0 and that led to the defeat. Starting quarterback Casey Thompson was out for the last game, and it’s unclear if he’s going to be able to go in this game. Chubba Purdy completed 6 of his 16 passes for 41 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. Logan Smothers completed 5 of his 10 passes for 80 yards. Nebraska is averaging 25.6 points while their defense is giving up 29.4 points per game. If Thompson is out again for this game, Nebraska is going to need to have better play. 

On the other side of this matchup is MIchigan who sit with a 9-0 record and they have gone 6-3 against the spread. In the last game against Rutgers, Michigan scored 52 points and that was enough for the blowout victory. Quarterback J.J. McCarthy completed 13 of his 27 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns. Minnesota is averaging 42.2 points while their defense is giving up 12.1 points per game. The offense is ranked 5th in the league while their defense is ranked 3rd in the league. 

Nebraska is 3-7 against the spread in their last ten games. Michigan is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games against a team with a losing record. The under is 5-1 in Nebraska’s last six games. The under is 11-4 in Michgian’s last 15 home games. 

This game is not going to be a fun one for Nebraska. The Cornhuskers are going to really struggle to move the ball and it wouldn’t shock me if they were shut out. Look for Michigan to run all over the defense of Nebraska and that will be the difference as this game is a blowout. Back Michigan against the spread.
