Last Season Records: Northwestern 3-9; Nebraska 3-9
The Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Northwestern Wildcats are opening their 2022 seasons against one another at 12:30 p.m. ET on Saturday on a neutral field at Aviva Stadium. Coming off of an uninspired 3-9 last-season record, Nebraska has set their aspirations higher this year. Likewise, returning after a rocky 3-9 season, Northwestern is aiming to prove that the past does not define them.
A couple numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: Few squads threw more interceptions than the Cornhuskers, who were picked off 11 times. The Wildcats experienced some struggles of their own as few teams threw more interceptions than them, who were picked off 14 times. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
Nebraska is the favorite in this one, with an expected 13-point margin of victory. A win is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
