Nebraska Cornhuskers vs Northwestern Wildcats Predictions 8/27/2022


After a dismal 2021 season, the Northwestern Wildcats are seeking improvement. They suffered many lopsided losses in the final six matches of the season. Throughout conference play, the offense was a major problem.


Rutgers was the opponent in their lone conference victory. Northwestern placed 125th in 2021 with an average score of just 16.6 points. The defense lost 29 points on average per game, ranking them 91st in the FBS.


Ryan Hilinski, the Wildcats’ leading passer from the previous year, is back. The junior quarterback and the graduating Andrew Marty shared the workload.


With 987 passing yards and a 3:4 TD to INT ratio, Hilinski ended the game. He only made 54% of his passes in contact.


The Wildcats may turn to backup quarterbacks Carl Richardson or Brendan Sullivan if they don’t see improvement right away.


  • The Northwestern Wildcats are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 matches as an underdog of 0.5-3.0. 
  • The Wildcats are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 conference matches. 
  • The Wildcats are 0-4-2 ATS in their last 6 matches as a favorite of 0.5-3.0.

Nebraska Cornhuskers vs Northwestern Wildcats. The NCAAF pick for this game is the Northwestern Wildcats. In Dublin, Ireland, a neutral location, the Big Ten begins.


The remaining six games of the 2021 season were lost by each team. Well, 13.5 points is a lot to give in the season opener for Nebraska, which was 1-8 in Big Ten play the previous year.


With a new offensive coach, the Cornhuskers’ offense took a few games to settle down. The Wildcats also have a potent running attack led by Evan Hull.


Last year, the junior RB amassed an impressive 1009 running yards at 5.1 yards per carry. The Huskers finished 58th in the FBS last season with their poor at best run defense.


Furthermore, Nebraska’s new offensive coordinator Mark Whipple is well known for favoring passing over running. This is nice, but the pass defense is NW’s strongest defensive attribute.


Last year, they only allowed 216 passing yards per game against their opponents. The Northwestern Wildcats will win to a predicted score of 30-24.
