Colton Feist says underdog status is 'going to light a fire' for Nebraska in matchup vs. Minnesota
Colton Feist had something to say about the betting odds coming out for Nebraska’s game against Minnesota. The current odds from DraftKings have the Cornhuskers as +16 underdogs to the Golden Gophers at home.
Kevin Sjuts was on hand for Feist’s comments:
Nebraska is a two touchdown underdog at home to Minnesota this week.

“That’s going to light a fire under us,” said Feist. “I didn’t really know that, but you just telling me that kind of fires me up. We’re gonna practice hard this week, practice for Minnesota and do everything we can to put ourselves in position to win this game.”
Feist had a career-high 6 tackles against Illinois and tied his best with 1.5 TFLs. After losing the lead to Illinois and giving up 20 unanswered points, the Cornhuskers are looking to regroup at Memorial Stadium.
The Cornhuskers will need to play their best game to pull off an upset against Minnesota. This bulletin board material might help provide more motivation for a struggling Nebraska team who is hoping to find its 3rd conference win for the season.
Feist and the team are trying to find an identity under interim head coach Mickey Joseph who currently is 2-3 since taking over for Scott Frost.
