The Nebraska Cornhuskers will host the Iowa Hawkeyes for their season finale, in what could be Scott Frost's final game at the helm.

Iowa has responded to a rough month of October with three straight wins over Northwestern, Minnesota, and Illinois.

The Cornhuskers followed up a rough seven-week stretch that included six losses by one score or less by taking another close loss to Ohio State, 26-17. Nebraska covered the generous home spread, but it's been a sickening season for Scott Frost's team.


Offensive matchup
Iowa (8-3)

Spencer Petras' injury has thrusted Alex Padilla into the starting lineup. The sophomore quarterback has kept the Hawkeyes New Year's bowl dreams alive solid game management, including a three touchdown performance against Minnesota.

Tyler Goodson has been the focal point of Iowa's offense this season. Goodson rushed for 132 yards against Illinois, and he leads the team with 945 rushing yards and five touchdowns.

Junior Sam LaPorta might be the next great Iowa tight end in line, and he leads the team with 37 catches for 425 receiving yards and two scores.

Nebraska (3-8)

Adrian Martinez' had another solid showing against Ohio State. He only led the offense to nine first half points, and all five of their losses have come from similar beginnings.

Martinez has thrown for 2,863 yards, with 14 touchdowns to ten interceptions this season. The four-year starter also leads the team with 525 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns.

Samori Toure leads the team in receiving with 40 catches for 831 yards and five scores, and he's coming off of a pair of 100-yard outings. Junior tight end Austin Allen had career-highs of seven catches and 143 yards against a talented Wisconsin defense.


It's fitting that the Cornhuskers finally get over the hump in their season finally against a quiet arch rival in Iowa. Adrian Martinez has endured a lot this season, but we like him at home against an offensively challenged Iowa team. Don't let the records fool you in this spot.

Take Nebraska to win this year's Heroes Game.
