No. 3 Iowa (11-0, 7-0 Big Ten, No. 4 CFP) at Nebraska (5-6, 3-4), 3:30 p.m. (ABC)

Line: Iowa by 1 ½

Series Record: Nebraska leads 29-13-3


Iowa, with a win, will complete its first perfect regular season since going 7-0 in 1922 and keep itself in position for a spot in the College Football Playoff. Nebraska is going for its third win in a row and a 6-6 record that will secure bowl eligibility.


Iowa running backs vs. Nebraska front seven. Jordan Canzeri, LeShun Daniels and Akrum Wadley lead a potent ground game averaging 208 yards a game. The Huskers are 10th in the nation against the run (110 ypg) and will be looking to make the Hawkeyes one-dimensional.


Iowa: QB C.J. Beathard. He’s the only Iowa QB to win his first 12 starts. He’ll have to make plays in an amped-up Memorial Stadium against a motivated defense for Iowa to win.

Nebraska: RB Imani Cross. The senior played the best back-to-back games of his career against Michigan State and Rutgers, and he’s the physical kind of back who gives the Huskers the best chance of denting Iowa’s stout front four.


The Hawkeyes have been getting off to good starts, scoring a touchdown on their opening possession three straight weeks and outscoring opponents 71-23 in the first quarter. … Iowa has scored 30-plus points in five straight Big Ten games for the first time. … Nebraska, which defeated Michigan State on Nov. 7, is trying for a second win over a top-10 opponent in the same season since 1999. … The Huskers are 5-2 against ranked teams at home since 2009. … The Huskers haven’t beaten an undefeated opponent in the final regular-season game since winning 27-18 over New York University in 1927.
