The Iowa Hawkeyes are 7-4 (5-3) this season after they defeated Minnesota by a score of 13-10 in their last game. Iowa only gained 280 total yards, but forced two turnovers in the win. The Iowa offense is averaging 17.5 points per game with 158.9 passing yards per game and 94.8 rushing yards per game. Spencer Petras has thrown for 1,716 yards, five touchdowns, and five interceptions for the Hawkeyes this season.

Nebraska is 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 November games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games. The under is 4-0 in Nebraska’s last 4 games. Iowa is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games. The under is 5-1 in Iowa’s last 6 home games. The over is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

Iowa needs to win this game in order to get to the Big Ten Title Game, but will be without Sam LaPorta, who has been their best offensive player this season. Nebraska is looking forward to having this season end, especially after blowing their last game against Wisconsin. Iowa should have enough to win this game, even without LaPorta, but I like Nebraska with the points. Nebraska has done a decent job this season of keeping games close. Take the Cornhuskers here.
