Hot streak continues as I was 2-0 again last week for a yearly total of 7-1. UW is a 6.5 point favorite and the o/u is 57.
Both these teams have feasted on crappy competition this year. Nebraska comes in with the 10th ranked scoring offense and 16th ranked scoring defense. They have only played 2 decent teams all year, the loss @MSU, and a win at home vs. Miami. UW is 19th in scoring offense and 3rd in scoring defense. They have only played 2 decent teams too, the loss to LSU, and the win vs. Maryland.
I am not yet a believer in the UW defense. They are good, but they have not played a great offense all year. This will be a true test. I don't expect a shoot out, or a destruction like in the big ten championship. This game will be cold. There will not be a fast track like in Indianapolis.
I like UW to win, but in what could be single digit temps in the second half I think the score will stay low. 6.5 is too much in a low scoring game. I'm taking Nebraska to cover, and the under.
Final score UW 24-Nebraska 21.
