Nebraska To Face Rutgers In Final Champions Week Game Of 2020

Yes, we wanted football. Maybe not this football, but we wanted this season and here comes the end.

NCAA Football: Rutgers at Maryland Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The final game of the bucket of shit year that is 2020 is set.

Nebraska will face Rutgers on Friday at 3:00 pm central time.

The game will be at Piscataway, NJ at Rutgers SHI Stadium. It will be televised by Big Ten Network. These teams last met in 2017. Nebraska leads the series 4-0.

Rutgers is 3-5, ahead of both Michigan schools in the East. Nebraska is 2-5 and tied with Illinois at the bottom of the West.

Former Nebraska quarterback Noah Vedral was injured on a dirty play in the Maryland game this past weekend.

The full slat of champions week games are below.

Minnesota vs Wisconsin - they missed this game earlier, so they’ll get to play for Paul Bunyan’s Axe.

Michigan vs Iowa - I would have liked to see Nebraska play Michigan in a “Sad Coaches Bowl”. Don’t get me wrong, I still love Scott Frost, but it’s like he has to go through trials and tribulations to find the promised land.

Purdue vs Indiana - “Old Oaken Bucket”. A better game would be Indiana vs Iowa, and it probably could have vaulted Indiana into a high bowl tier (NY6) with a win.
