Nebraska is in serious jeopardy of ending the season with seven losses, meaning the Huskers wouldn't qualify for a bowl game. Head coach Scott Frost and quarterback Adrian Martinez are going to try and do everything they can to avoid a season-ending loss against No. 17 Iowa on Saturday.
Martinez isn't going to shy away from the challenge against the Hawkeyes. In fact, the Nebraska QB is well aware of what's at stake on Saturday.
"It’s obvious what’s at stake for us this week, but our guys are focused," Martinez said, via

It's a good thing Martinez and the Huskers are aware of what's ahead of them. Win, and you go bowling. Lose, and your season is over.
Iowa will certainly be up for the challenge as well. Any chance a team gets to play in Husker territory is a big deal, and the Hawkeyes will look to capitalize on the moment.
The Huskers will salvage any momentum they can on Saturday. Nebraska is coming off a lopsided 54-7 victory over Maryland last Saturday. Will Martinez and this Huskers offense be able to have success against Iowa?
Iowa-Nebraska kicks off at 2:30 p.m. ET on Big Ten Network. The Hawkeyes have won four straight against the Huskers.
