The Cornhuskers opened as 4-point favorites over visiting UCLA in a battle of Top 25 teams.
No. 20 Nebraska covered the spread in six of seven home games last season, but was unimpressive in opening wins over Wyoming and Southern Miss at Memorial Stadium to start this year.
The Cornhuskers’ defense was extremely shaky in Week 1 against Wyoming, surrendering 34 points.
No. 16 UCLA brings an explosive offense to Lincoln, led by sophomore quarterback Brett Hundley. The Bruins put up 58 points in an opening win over Nevada. They were off last week.
The game kicks off at noon ET, an early start for West Coast teams.
