NU @ Purdue Prediction Thread!!!

So the Huskers have won 2 in a row for the first time since 2018. Purdue has won 3 in a row after early losses to PSU and Syracuse. Both teams are 2-1 atop the B1G West standings. 

Looking at the basic statistics, Purdue owns significant advantages in nearly all of them.

I guess our passing defense is better lol. But looking at schedules played hard to see where we make a lot of hay in a night game in sold out West Lafayette. The spread has gone up to 13.5-14 now which is a little surprising given all of the "Mickey Monentum" lol. 

Hey, the season is going better (at the moment) than we figured  after the loss to GA Southern. And certainly Frost's 3 games affect the stats. But sadly this game didn't feel like a win before the season and not a lot has changed that. I could see this game certainly getting away if the wrong snowball starts up. But we'll take a tiny sip of kool-aid and side with NU and their 3-3 ATS vs Purdue's 2-4.

  • You know I think at times.. a good change up would be a series or two with Logan Smothers, option, run/pass. He actually played very good for his first start against Iowa last year, he is a decent Qb. Anyway it wil be tough on our D with Purdunk-n-dink passing attack, our LB and DB' s better have their track shoes on. Have to put pressure on their QB, could get ugly. Think we can run on them a bit.. (?)

  • Last I knew It was the japs that bombs Pearl Harbor.  But that is a different matter.  Both teams have some key people hurt.  Both should be able to,score almost at Will.  My head says Purdue.  My heart says HUSKERS.

  • Purdue's only losses this year are to two top 25 undefeated teams each by less than a TD.  Nebraska has started to look like a program that can play football....albeit not great football.  Purdue is missing 4 starters but have a very good QB, receiver corp.  

    Nebraska will be able to make plays much like Maryland did last week against this defense,  I would not be surprised to see Purdy or Logan come in a series or two just to keep Thompson from being punished all night.  Can't bet against them since they are playing a west competitor....
