OUR PREDICTION: With both of these teams struggle to cover on neutral site floors, the under looks to be the best bet on the board. The under is 5-1-1 in Texas' last seven games overall, is 4-1 in the Longhorns' last five non-conference games and is 13-3-1 in their last 17 contests coming off a win. On the other side, the under has cashed in seven of the Wildcats' last eight neutral site games. With Texas allowing 61.3 points per game and Northwestern holding opponents to 68.3 PPG, the combined score should fall comfortably under the total tonight.
