Not sure we need to be thinking about no-sit Sunday yet, but this one is pretty, pretty big.  If you aren't there for this one, you ain't a Husker fan.  Gonna be tough, but I have faith in these guys.  Let's go get 4-0!

Bumping this as we're playing them again.

We are currently 0-3 vs NW since Derereererk Pardon started playing.

The 8 point loss in Lincoln was the closet game we've played in that stretch.

 

Northwestern has been up and down this year in 3pt shooting but they really seem to burn teams with bad 3pt defenses...which is Nebraska

On Monday, I told a friend if Northwestern was favored by more than 7, I'd take the Huskers.  Dimes, aka Little Black Rain Cloud, has been doing his best to talk me out of it.  Can anyone give me hope to stick with my pick?

 

Even a 11-8 (3-4) Georgia Tech team can beat a #6 11-2 (6-1) Florida State team every now and then...

We were 14.5 point dogs to Indiana.

Other than Kansas we've haven't lost a road game by more than 6 points.

 

:ph34r: The line has dropped to 8.5

Huskers have been in every game. I don't think they'll give up nearly as many open 3's (trigger warning, sorry...). I just think we'll see something of a desperate team tonight. I also think they make some adjustments to get Glynn going and he'll have a big game back in his home town.

You are suppose to put the trigger warning before you cause me to have flashbacks.

      Two wins separate us from Michigan, and with the 4th overall SOS compared to their 127th overall SOS (201 non-con), this game may be closer than some think.

      Guys, all of a sudden we have a HUGE home game to talk about at the beginning of January.  I figured this merits a pregame discussion thread.  Man, am I pumped!
       
      So, let's get it started.  Here's a little bit of the skinny on Iowa, they have a couple of huge home wins vs Iowa State and Michigan:
       
      75 Iowa (9-6)
      Hawkeyes · Iowa City, IA
      Head coach: Fran McCaffery
