The favorite has dominated the number as of recent when the Cornhuskers and Wildcats meet as they are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The Nebraska Cornhuskers are coming off an embarrassing home primetime loss against the Ohio State Buckeyes, but they should be able to respond against a struggling Northwestern team. The Wildcats have had a revolving door at QB as Hunter Johnson and Aidan Smith have combined for 2 TDs and 7 interceptions which won’t get the job done in Big Ten play. The Cornhuskers are more than capable of busting out some big plays against a solid Northwestern defense as Adrian Martinez is explosive through the air and on the ground.
