The Nebraska Cornhuskers (1-3, 0-1) welcome the Indiana Hoosiers (3-1, 1-0) to Lincoln for Homecoming this Saturday. The visit also marks just the second time IU visits Lincoln as Big Ten conference foes. Despite being in the same league for the 12th season this fall, Indiana and Nebraska will be playing for just the third time in that span and the second in Memorial Stadium.
However, even with a Husker win, the Hoosiers will still leave Saturday with the advantage in the series. Since the first meeting between the programs in 1936, Indiana holds a 10-8-3 record against Nebraska that included a seven-game win streak from 1941-1947.
A 54-0 home victory in 1944 marks the largest IU victory margin, but in Nebraska’s own best win streak, five from 1975-2016, UNL defeated IU 69-17 in 1978 in Bloomington. Even in terms of shutouts, Indiana holds the advantage in the series there. UNL has been held to 0 points in four meetings (1938, 1942, 1944, 1947) while IU has been held to 0 just three times (1937, 1938, 1975). So yes, for those keeping track, that 1938 matchup was a mutual 0-0 tie.
