6) OK, prediction time -- who ya got?
I'll still stick with the Huskers. Nebraska has enough going for it that I think they win this game with an insurance TD in the fourth quarter and some clutch play by Martinez. Iowa keeps it close until then with a defensive TD and two more from whichever Iowa RB is healthiest. Final score 35-24 Nebraska.
Thanks for being a good sport, Jesse. Please be gentle. You can check out Jesse at Off-Tackle Empire. You can also follow him on Twitter at @jcollinsatcssus. The Iowa-Nebraska game is in Iowa City, IA on Friday, November 23 at 11am CT, with television coverage from ABC. It is the last time we will have to watch Iowa play football until 2013.
