There are several marquee matchups this weekend, which includes a conference clash between Michigan and Nebraska. Even though the Wolverines are definitely the favorites in this game, it could turn into a nail-biting showdown.

Sure, the Cornhuskers still don't have a win under Scott Frost, but defeating the Wolverines would certainly change the mood in Nebraska. If Adrian Martinez returns for tomorrow's game, there could be a chance for an upset.

However, ESPN's matchup predictor doesn't believe a season-changing win is in the future for Nebraska.

According to the FPI, Michigan has a 94.5 percent chance of winning. Michigan is slowly finding themselves of late, grabbing back-to-back wins over SMU and Western Michigan.

Nebraska vs. Michigan score prediction.

With conference play starting for several teams in the Big Ten, both the Wolverines and Cornhuskers can steal the show tomorrow afternoon.

Nebraska and Michigan will kick off at 12:00 p.m. ET in Ann Harbor. The game will be available on FS1.
