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.
