There are very few guarantees when it comes to the game of football, but when it comes to the Nebraska Cornhuskers' road game against the Purdue Boilermakers this week, we've found an exception to the rule. Here's 3 Reasons Why Nebraska Is GUARANTEED To Beat Purdue.
3) Purdue's awful
The Purdue Boilermakers' only win this season was against FCS-level Indiana State. Their defense has been awful, their offense is spotty and there's little to nothing here to suggest they'll even be competitive against a much more talented Huskers squad.
2) Things have gotta change
Nebraska is only a few plays away from being 8-0 this season. They lost on a Hail Mary to BYU, lost in OT to Miami, on a touchdown on the last play of scrimmage agaisnt Illinois, on a last-minute field goal to Wisconsin and in a heartbreaking close one to Northwestern - all of which are games that Nebraska could have won easily. Had they done that, Nebraska winning the Big Ten West and making the College Football Playoff would be on the docket, but they haven't been able to make the plays down the stretch when they've needed to. That has to change at some point, and there's no time like the present.
1) They're due
It's been a gut-wrenching season in almost every respect. Nebraska's players and fans have been through so much this year, it's almost impossible to think that they'll give this one up to a Purdue team that isn't anywhere near their league. The Huskers deserve a good old-fashioned cupcake game, and this is it.
