Nebraska comes into Saturday's game at 5-2, looking for a win to become bowl eligible and keep their hopes alive of taking the Big Ten's West Division, while Northwestern has lost four in a row and are still looking for their first conference win.
Neither Nebraska nor Northwestern are ranked in any poll and both teams were upset by the Minnesota Golden Gophers! Add to that the BATTLE FOR "NU", that the winning total in our two games as Big Ten Conference mates is four points, and it's like we should be best friends forever!
