    The Skinny

    The Huskers switched it up on Thursday in Maryland and while they didn't win, they finally showed they could play on the road. Nebraska will continue to change things up as Nick Fuller will make his first career start. Hopefully the Huskers will continue to respond.

    Iowa has been inconsistent in conference play so it's tough to know which team shows up on Sunday. They tend to do worse in slower games or games where they can't force turnovers, so a controlled Nebraska squad like the one that came up short in Iowa City has a good chance in this game.

    This game is going to come down to free throws though which is a strength of the Hawkeyes and recently a huge problem for the Huskers. Nebraska knows Aaron White and Gabriel Olaseni are fouls waiting to happen. How they defend and how the game is called will make the difference.

    Nebraska tends to play inspired ball when former players come home. Expect that to continue

    Prediction: Nebraska 69 - Iowa 62
