One stat paints bleak picture for Nebraska continuing recent winning streak in Week 7
Nebraska football is in the midst of reviving a once-dead season, winning 2 straight matchups with B1G opponents. However, one stat looks to disrupt everything interim coach Mickey Joseph has accomplished so far this season.
The Cornhuskers have not had much success against the spread. As a double-digit underdog, Nebraska has lost 24 straight games dating back to the 2005 Alamo Bowl against Michigan. They hope to end that streak against a very good Purdue team as a 13.5-point underdog.
However, the Cornhuskers have been able to put a few embarrassing streaks behind them, most notably, they hadn’t beaten an FBS opponent in 364 days heading into a contest with Indiana. Nebraska was able to end that streak before it hit the year mark with a 35-21 win over the Hoosiers.
Nebraska will have to go against the odds away in West Lafayette; Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 pm ET.
Nebraska is currently a 13.5 point underdog against Purdue on Saturday.
