Winner Of Nebraska vs Iowa Is Obvious, Says ESPN

The winner of Nebraska vs Iowa is obvious, says ESPN.

Rivalry week will feature a lot of interesting battles, so it is easy to see why some might forget a showdown between Nebraska and Iowa.

Nebraska enters this one fresh off their most dominant victory of the year, courtesy of a 54-7 systematic destruction of a terrible Maryland team.

While the win was unquestionably impressive, it does little to wash away the sins of a year filled with nothing but disappointment.

Nebraska needs to beat Iowa just to make it to a bowl game – that tells you everything you need to know about the year the Huskers have had.

Iowa, meanwhile, put together another quietly solid season.

Fresh off a 19-10 victory a really solid Illinois squad, and two weeks removed from having beaten then-unbeaten Minnesota, the Hawkeyes have their sights set on a NYE 6 slot.

On paper, it is really hard to determine a scenario where Nebraska has anything for this Iowa program – and ESPN agrees.

According to ESPN’s statistical analysis of the upcoming game, Iowa is a 70.5 percent favorite over Nebraska.

Will that ultimately end up happening?

We’ll find out for sure this Saturday.
