Indiana vs. Nebraska Prediction

I’m on Nebraska in this one. The Cornhuskers are the rested and the better team here and I didn’t really love how Indiana struggled to get by Penn State. Nebraska also crushed Indiana in both meetings in the regular season and were on an absolute tear to finish the regular season. I’ll back Nebraska laying the reasonable number here.
