Memorial Stadium

The Nebraska Cornhuskers will look to remain atop the standings in the Big Ten West when they welcome the struggling Purdue Boilermakers to Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Cornhuskers have won five straight SU at home this season, but are just 3-2 ATS after failing to cover as 19.5-point home favorites in their 42-24 win over Rutgers last weekend.

While the OVER is a solid 7-4 in Nebraska's last 11, their game against Rutgers was just the third during that span in which they have allowed 24 or more points. Conversely, the 3-5 Boilermakers have struggled to keep opponents off the score sheet, surrendering over 35 per game in their last three, and were pounded 44-7 in last season's meeting with Nebraska. Despite their lack of defense, the Boilermakers covered in each of their last three, improving to 6-2 ATS on the season, and are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six matchups on the road.
