The Nebraska Cornhuskers attempt to remain perfect in the all-time series when they visit the Rutgers Scarlet Knights for a Big Ten matchup on Friday. Nebraska (2-3, 1-1 Big Ten) posted a 28-21 victory at Rutgers in 2020 to improve to 5-0 in the all-time series. Rutgers (3-2, 0-2) is looking to end a four-game losing streak in conference games that dates back to last season.  

Kickoff at SHI Stadium in Piscataway, NJ is set for 7 p.m. ET. The Cornhuskers are 3-point favorites in the latest Nebraska vs. Rutgers odds, while the over/under for total points scored is 50.5. (See the latest college football lines for all of this week's games on our college football odds page.)

Before you make any Rutgers vs. Nebraska picks or college football predictions, you NEED to see the predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past six-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of more than $3,100 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.

The model knows Nebraska will be playing its first true road game of the season after defeating Indiana 35-21 at home last week to end its nine-game losing streak against FBS opponents. Junior quarterback Casey Thompson threw a pair of touchdown passes and ran for another TD as the Cornhuskers kept the Hoosiers off the scoreboard in the second half. Junior running back Anthony Grant continued his strong season in the win as he posted his fourth 100-yard performance with 136 yards on 32 carries.

The model also knows Rutgers is looking to avoid a three-game slide after suffering a 49-10 setback at Ohio State last Saturday. Sophomore quarterback Evan Simon was limited to 74 passing yards in the loss after setting a career high with 300 at home against Iowa a week earlier. The Scarlet Knights struggled against the run but permitted only 161 yards through the air versus the Buckeyes, who averaged 339 over their first four games this season.

Now, the model has set its sights on Nebraska vs. Rutgers. We can tell you it is leaning Under on the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits well over 50% of the time! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any college football picks.
