Ok. This team is not very good. But the good news is....IL is terrible too! And coached by Lovie. Who I’m guessing is on his last season. Another school with a terrible buyout. AD’s have no clue...but I digress.
If NU does not win this game, pretty idiotic. A cellar dweller with a QB that ran 31 times last week (over half designed) Should be easy to defend. Frost will go 1000mph but shouldn’t matter this week. The Illini should be beaten by 20-24 points IMO. I’ll say:
IL 19 NU 45
Historically we do not do well against running quarterbacks. But he is all They have assuming he plays. In my opinion Luke has not gown that he has a deep ball n his arsenal but then he doesn’t have much to throw to either.
with our bend don’t brrsk and a sporadic at best offense. I think it will be close than everyone thinks.
NU 35. Illnois 24
First team to score 30 points wins. In this case, it's the Huskers.
Herbie Huskers - 31
No Mascot Team - 17
I agree with PT, closer than it should be, but a fun game to watch.
