Staff Prediction

Petras will be without his favorite target in Laporta, but this offense will once again depend on their defense to win this one big. Their defense is allowing just 13.5 PPG and will have no problem with Casey Thompson who has a 14/10 TD/INT ratio. Iowa will force some turnovers and give their offense some good field position. Iowa's offense has been rolling since the OSU game averaging 23.5 PPG. The Nebraska rush defense is one of the worst in the nation so the Iowa run game should be able to take some pressure off the terrible QB.

Pick: Iowa -10.5
