With conference play opening up in the Big Ten, Michigan and Nebraska will battle this upcoming weekend.

The Scott Frost era isn't off to an excellent start, as the Cornhuskers lost their first two games. As for Michigan, Jim Harbaugh's offense has come alive over the past two weekends, averaging 47 points per contest.

Obviously, both Michigan and Nebraska could use a victory within their conference, but ESPN's Football Power Index believes the Wolverines will come out on top.

The current FPI gives Michigan an immense 94.5 percent chance of winning. If Nebraska is going to shock the No. 19 ranked team in the country, then they'll need Adrian Martinez on the field. The dual-threat quarterback was out of action last weekend, as he recovers from an injured knee.

Nebraska vs. Michigan score prediction.

Considering the recent production of Shea Patterson, Nebraska will need to prepare for a high-scoring affair.

Michigan and Nebraska are set to kick off at 12:00 p.m. ET. The game will be on FS1.
