WIN Nebraska wins 35-31 this is going to be a close game. Neither team will dominate. I think the Nebraska offense is better than the Minnesota defense enough for the win. Players to Watch QB tanner Morgan only because their other QB was just injured, so is he the guy? WR Tyler Johnson WR Rashod Bateman RB Mohamed Ibrahim DE Carter Coughlin S Antoine Winfield Position Comparisons OL Nebraska QB Nebraska RB Minnesota TE Nebraska WR Minnesota DL Northwestern LB Nebraska CB Nebraska Safeties Minnesota Kicking game - Nebraska Minnesota has to replace their best kicker ever Punting - Nebraska This is the game that decides what Nebraska's season will be and the same can be said for Minnesota. If Nebraska gets the win, then the team will believe. By this time, Nebraska should know who the starting RB is. Minnesota lost QB Annexstad for the year possibly, so the starting job is now Tanner Morgan's. Tanner is a scrambler which posed problems for Nebraska the last four years. Minnesota went 4-2 at home in 2018. Even with a loss to Nebraska in 2019, Minnesota's schedule has cupcake written all over it. Playing S Dakota State, Fresno State, Ga Southern, Illinois, Rutgers, and Maryland is basically 6 wins without even trying. Nebraska destroyed Minnesota for the first win of Scott Frost's Nebraska career. But that was a bad DC. Just like Nebraska's end of season turn around, Minnesota figured out defense once they fired their original D Coordinator. Minnesota went 3-1 the last four games, including a bowl win. The defense held Purdue to 10, Wisconsin to 15, and G Tech to 10 in victories, Nebraska gave up 42 to Purdue and 41 to Wisconsin. Minnesota could be 5-0 coming into the game. Their first three games are wins, and they probably win at Purdue, because Purdue will still be looking for a QB. X factor in this game will be Wandale Robinson.
