Nebraska wins by 1.

Nebraska loses by 1.

Those margins are so small yet are so impactful in regardless to how we feel about the future of the program. A bowl game would be huge for this team. It is so young at so many positions. Remember that there is not a single senior on the offense.

There will be a lot of spots to fill on the defensive side of the ball but there is a lot of promise.

I’m not expecting a win. I will be very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very happy if Nebraska can pull it off.

This game is on the offense. Iowa has a top flight defense. Kind of like Wisconsin. Nebraska was able to move the ball very well in terms of yards against Wisconsin.

Only 21 points.

The opportunity is there for the taking. We either win and celebrate as a fan base. Or we lose and turn our hopes to Nebrasketball.

Unfortunately, they aren’t looking any good either.

Regardless, Nebraska football is either on the right track or not. I 100% believe that Nebraska Football is on the right track. A win or loss tomorrow doesn’t change that fact.

Husker Weekly Wrap: A full house at kicker
Pick whatever cliche you want to use about Nebraska’s kicking situation, and it probably doesn’t go far enough to describe what’s transpired for the Big Red this season.

Even revolving doors don’t spin this much.

Five stats to know, five Huskers to highlight
It has been eight years since Nebraska has defeated Iowa in Memorial Stadium.

Since then, we've seen three Husker losses to the Hawkeyes that have included a head coach's hat swipe right in front of an official's nose, a plethora of picks that gave away a golden chance to spoil an undefeated Iowa season, and a demolition of a Nebraska team that just wanted to go sit by the fire and call it a season.

Junior College standout Keisei Tominaga commits to Nebraska
Junior College prospect Keisei Tominaga verbally committed to Nebraska on Thursday, a source tells 247Sports.

Tominaga, a 6-foot-1 combination guard out of Ranger College in Texas, will join Nebraska apart of the 2021 recruiting class.

IF Nebraska wins Friday, what bowls could be in play?
When departing Nashville, Tennessee three years ago after a Husker bowl loss, a Nebraska fan would have been most appalled if told their team wouldn't be bowling at all the next two years – and maybe three.

Steven M. Sipple: Nebraska should crave Iowa's stability; that doesn't mean Huskers can't win | Column |
Let's do something that's ... highly questionable.

Let's pick Nebraska to beat Iowa on Black Friday in Memorial Stadium.

By way of explanation, the best I can do is say it's a gut feeling. Because it otherwise doesn't make much sense.
