This week, Northwestern travels west to Lincoln to face Nebraska. Here are some links to get you caught up on the Cornhuskers' season:
- Over the course of Northwestern's current four-game losing streak, it is usually the Wildcats' defensive front that enters the game with the most question marks. This week, though, Nebraska's front seven is struggling to find its way.
- After an outstanding junior season, Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez has struggled with injuries this year. With his status in question this week due to a hip pointer, Nebraska's quarterback position is in flux.
- Like Northwestern, Nebraska has struggled as of late. But unlike Northwestern's Pat Fitzgerald, Nebraska's Bo Pelini is squarely on the hot seat. Heading into the toughest part of the schedule, Pelini must right the ship before it's too late.
- Nebraska's most dangerous offensive weapon is running back Ameer Abdullah. In order for Nebraska to potentially turn its season around, it must get back to the ground game.
