The Cornhuskers are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Hawkeyes are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Cornhuskers last 4 games overall. The under is 9-3 in Hawkeyes last 12 games overall. The road team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The underdog is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings.

The Iowa Hawkeyes remain a mess on both sides of the ball, have scored no more than 14 points in 5 of their last 6 games, and at this point you have to question their motivation on short rest. The Iowa Hawkeyes continue to make a case as the best defense in the country, it’s senior night, and they clinch a trip to the Big Ten Championship with a victory. Thick line for an Iowa team that can’t score, but backing Nebaraksa is a no-go for me. Give me the motivated Hawkeyes.
