Nebraska vs Purdue. Nebraska’s defense vs the best quarterback in the Big Ten West - Hudson Card.

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Nebraska is 3-point favorite over Purdue. The OU is 41.5. Not very high, obviously, because our beloved Huskers have an atrocious offense, and the Blackshirt defense should keep Purdue from scoring a lot.

Unless there are a lot of turnovers.
