Nebraska vs. Indiana preview:

Nebraska sits at 5-0 on the season, and has really only been tested once so far this season. That test came against then No. 22 Oregon, which the Huskers won 35-32. Other than that it has been smooth sailing for Nebraska, which comes off of a 31-16 win last week.

Indiana is somewhat of an enigma so far this season. The Hoosiers stated off the season with two straight wins before dropping a 33-28 contest against a solid Wake Forest team, although they should have won that game. Indiana followed up that loss with a 24-21 win over then No. 17 Michigan State. Next up for the Hoosiers was Ohio State, which Indiana played tough in a 38-17 loss.

Nebraska vs. Indiana have played 19 times in history, with the Hoosiers holding a 9-7-3 advantage. 

Nebraska vs. Indiana prediction:

Yes, Nebraska comes into this game ranked No. 10 in the nation. But don't sleep on the Hoosiers, who are coming off of a solid performance against the juggernaut that is Ohio State.

Nebraska brings a very balanced offense into this week's contest with 238 yards passing per game and 234 yards rushing per game. Indiana's defense has been susceptible to both the run and the pass this season, so it will be interesting to see how they stack up. The Hoosiers held Ohio State's J.T. Barrett to just 97 yards passing last week. If they can get that kind of performance from their defense this time, Indiana will win.
