Nebraska vs Northwestern Preview

The Nebraska Cornhuskers and Northwestern Wildcats will kick off Big Ten football overseas on Saturday in Dublin, Ireland.

It marks the second-straight year Nebraska has opened the season during Week Zero, the first weekend of the college football season. Things didn’t end well last year for the Huskers in a 30-22 defeat at Illinois.

”We’re going to go out there and let it rip,” Nebraska head coach Scott Frost said via The Associated Press. ”I’m going to have more conversations with them about it. They have earned the right to be confident, and I’m sure Northwestern is, too. I think they’re going to be a really good team this year, and I don’t want the guys to worry about anything.”

Northwestern, which went 3-9 last season, looks to turn things around this year. Wildcats captain and junior running back Evan Hull said the talent is in place to do it.

“We got the guys for it,” Hull said via Saturday Tradition. “We got the talent. It’s about putting it together. We all push each other in practice, in the offseason.  We are all striving to get better every day. I wouldn’t want a different group to go out there and battle with. At the end of the day, we’re brothers.”

An NFL Draft prospect, Hull had a big sophomore season in 2021 with 1,009 yards and seven touchdowns. He mustered his second-lowest total of the season, however, against the Huskers in 2021 during a 56-7 loss.

Northwestern didn’t have much beyond Hull as the team finished last in scoring among Big Ten teams with 16.6 points per game. Second-year quarterback Ryan Hilinski could help the Wildcats get out of the cellar.

“Last year might as well have been a freshman year,” Wildcats head coach Pat Fitzgerald said via Athlon Sports. “You can definitely tell he’s further along in the system, in his confidence. We’ve got a great competition going on right now.”

Nebraska has a new quarterback under center in Casey Thompson, who transferred from Texas where he led Big 12 in touchdown passes. The Huskers added 22 players through the transfer portal in looking to turn things around from a 3-9 season in 2021.

“Some of those guys are almost confident to a fault, and offense needed a little injection of that,” Frost said via the Lincoln Journal Star’s Sam McKewon. “I think the coaches have done a good job of that, too, It has a little different feel to it.”
