The Nebraska football team squares off against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights this week and the fact that the two teams haven’t faced off all that often is just one of the interesting aspects of this matchup. There’s also the fact that the game is on a Friday night, rather than Saturday.

While the Huskers are looking to improve on their 2-3 record and get to .500 for the first time in a long time. Meanwhile, the Scarlet Knights are trying to stave off falling back to .500 after starting the season 3-0.

This is a big game for the Nebraska football team. It’s a must win if Mickey Joseph wants to prove that the team is really buying in. Because of that, there will likely be a ton of eyes on the Friday night tilt.

Nebraska football weather update

It looks like the contest between the Huskers and the Scarlet Knights is going to be played in perfect football weather. The fall weather is officially starting both here in Nebraska and in Piscataway.

While there was a game earlier in the season that was at one point thought to be in danger of getting canceled due to thunderstorms, it looks like Friday night’s game is going to be cool and clear. The weather forecast says it will be 56 degrees at kickoff and will feel like 50.

Nebraska football vs. Rutgers odds

The Huskers opened the week as very slight favorites, and the line has held pretty steady for the week. As of Friday morning, the Huskers were -3, according to FanDuel. The total for the game is 50.5, which seems rather modest for two teams that have had problems playing defense quite often this season.

When the Nebraska football team kicks off its contest against the Scarlet Knights it looks like it could be anybody’s game.
