ESPN's FPI predicts outcome of Wisconsin-Nebraska showdown
Provided the game between Wisconsin and Nebraska is played, there will be plenty of intriguing storylines to go around.
For the Cornhuskers, they will be happy just for the fact that they will not have to face Jonathan Taylor anymore. In his three career games against Nebraska, Taylor rushed for more than 200 yards every time with seven total touchdowns against the Cornhuskers.
While Wisconsin knows Taylor will not be suiting up for the Badgers, there is currently some uncertainty as to who would play quarterback this weekend. Jack Coan remains sidelined with an injury and it is being reported that Graham Mertz and Chase Wolf have both tested positive for COVID-19.
Hopefully the game is able to be played as there are some reports that the threat of cancellation is very real. Should the game be played, ESPN’s FPI sees one big favorite ahead of kickoff.
According to the FPI, the Badgers are given a 91.5% chance of coming away with a win on Saturday. Of course, that number would likely shift if Wisconsin is down to its third- or fourth-string quarterback.
Provided there is no cancellation, Saturday’s kickoff is set for 3:30 pm EST on FS1.
