The Nebraska Cornhuskers and meet up with the Northwestern Wildcats in Week 0 at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland. Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. ET and the game will air on FOX. The Cornhuskers finished with a 3-9 record in 2021, and 1-8 in the Big Ten West. The Wildcats also finished 3-9 and 1-8 in the Big Ten West.

Northwestern is badly trying to forget their 56-7 whooping to Nebraska last season. They have themselves an All-America offensive tackle in Peter Skoronski to quell the running woes, and the defense might be able to change the pace of the game much better than the previous meeting.

The Cornhuskers don’t plan on capping off the 2022-23 campaign six games under .500 once again.. Absolutely not. They now have Texas transfer Casey Thompson playing quarterback, and have cleaned up things offensively by adding depth to the WR room, as well as hiring Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Mark Whipple. The passing attack might be enough, in itself, to secure a win for the Cornhuskers.
