Nebraska has been a fun story this season in the Big Ten and looks like the team that's the favorite to win the West. However, the Cornhuskers have just one true road game under their belt and that was against a struggling Northwestern Wildcats. Indiana has been really solid this season, as the offense is still dangerous but it's the improved defense that's made the Hoosiers look like a possible bowl team in 2016. This is a game Indiana could win outright and snag its second win over a ranked team this season.
Give me Indiana and the free touchdown at home.
