Indiana will be looking to bounce back after their loss to the Spartans last weekend. Indiana is a high scoring team that also rebounds the ball well. Nebraska isn’t as good on offense, and has struggled lately. Indiana has been able to shoot the ball very well this season and I expect them to win this game. If Shields doesn’t play for Nebraska, this game could be ugly.
