Northwestern (2-0) will be put to the test again this weekend against the Nebraska Cornhuskers (0-1) in another Big Ten West battle. After a week off and the cancelation of their matchup with Wisconsin, the Huskers are hungry for their first win of the year while the Wildcats look to build upon their hot start.
The NU linebackers, especially, will be put to the test against a dynamic run-heavy Nebraska offense, as they face their toughest quarterback matchup yet with the Adrian Martinez-Luke McCaffrey duo under center. However, Peyton Ramsey and the Wildcat offense will look to pick apart a struggling Nebraska defense and lead their team to victory for the third consecutive week.
