  • The Nebraska Cornhuskers will be gunning for an eighth consecutive straight-up victory on Saturday afternoon when they welcome the Big Ten-West divisional rival Purdue Boilermakers to Memorial Stadium for a Week 8 college football matchup.


    Shark Bites
    • Nebraska is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
    • The total has gone UNDER in Nebraska's last five games against its conference.
    • Purdue is 1-12 SU in its last 13 games against teams with winning records.

    The Cornhuskers sit atop the Big Ten-West standings with a 6-0 straight-up record, and have won five straight at home. Nebraska has successfully frustrated opposing offenses, which have been held to 22 or fewer points in five of six games this season, and forced the point total UNDER in each of its past four.

    The 3-3 Boilermakers have alternated between wins and losses this season, and are coming off a disappointing 49-35 loss to Iowa as 12-point home underdogs, dropping them to 0-10 SU in their past 10 as double-digit underdogs. But they remain 6-3-1 ATS during that stretch.

    Purdue tallied an impressive 55-45 win over the Cornhuskers last October, paying out as 7.5-point home underdogs at the sportsbooks, and avenging a pair of lopsided losses to Nebraska in their two previous meetings. However, the Boilermakers have produced mixed results on the road, going 1-6 SU and 5-2 ATS in their past seven.
