Preview, Prediction: Iowa-Nebraska Football – Sports Illustrated Iowa Hawkeyes News, Analysis and More

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Iowa has its destiny in its own hands, hosting Nebraska Friday in the regular-season finals for both teams. A Hawkeye win means a return trip to Indianapolis for the Big Ten Championship Game. A home team loss opens the door for Purdue and Illinois.

The Hawkeyes (7-4 overall, 5-3 Big Ten) are on a four-game winning streak while the Huskers are five straight losers. Iowa owns seven consecutive wins in this series.

The pressure is clearly on Hawkeye’s touchline in this game. Nebraska’s campaign ends Friday and the search for a new full-time head coach continues.
