Nebraska is currently coming off of a tough home loss to the Minnesota Golden Gophers in Week 10 that moves the Huskers to 3-6 overall and 2-4 in Big Ten play. The Huskers will look to snap a three-game losing streak when the team takes the field in Ann Arbor that includes home losses to Minnesota and Illinois and dates back to a 37-43 road loss at Purdue win Week Eight.
Michigan, meanwhile, is battling with Rutgers tonight in Piscataway but entered the game 8-0 overall and 5-0 in Big Ten action. Michigan checked in at No. 5 in the inaugural College Football Playoff rankings this past week and is ranked No. 4 in both the latest AP Poll and AFCA Coaches Poll at time of publication of this article.
