Despite the offensive struggles, Northwestern is still typically a good defensive team that will be looking to grind out this game with long possessions on offense and forcing Armstrong to beat them with his arm. Nebraska has been cruising along on offense, but the Cornhuskers haven’t really faced a physical defense yet. Northwestern should give them some problems with their defense, so don’t look for the Cornhuskers to run away with this game quite so easily.
