Of course it’s a bye week for the Nebraska Cornhuskers, but several games you need to keep your eyes on in terms of the standings in the Big Ten East. The first in Northwestern at Minnesota. The Wildcats host the Huskers next weekend and a win for them tomorrow over the Gophers would move them to 3-0 in conference play and give them a 2.5 game lead over the Huskers heading into next Saturday’s game. The Gophers also ahead of the Huskers, they are 1-0 in Big Ten play. That game will kick off at 11am and you can watch it on the Big Ten Network.
The other game of interest is Indiana at Iowa. The Hawkeyes also sit at 1-0 in Big Ten play, they are third team ahead of the Huskers in the standings. That game kicks at 11 on ESPNU.
