Nebraska Cornhuskers game notes
Marcus Washington Hail Varsity’s Jacob Padilla reports (hand) will be available for Thursday’s opener against Minnesota. Washington, who has been limited in fall camp after suffering a broken hand over the summer, is “ready to play,” according to Washington coach Matt Rule. The 6-foot-2 senior appeared in all 12 games with the Cornhuskers last season, totaling 31 receptions for 471 yards and a score, and he should be a top target again in 2023.
Minnesota Golden Gophers game notes
Darius Taylor Ryan Burns of 247Sports reports that he is expected to be part of a four-man rotation early in the 2023 season. Taylor, along with Sean Tyler, Zach Evans and Bryce Williams, were mentioned as defensemen likely to see action early in the 2023 campaign. Whether or not the freshman continues to see his production throughout the season could depend on how he produces early in the year, but Taylor looks to at least try in that area.

Nebraska vs Minnesota betting prediction
This number is too high. The Cornhuskers are going through a transition under new head coach Matt Rolle, but they have an experienced offensive line, a strong running game and a QB in Jeff Sims who can make plays with his feet. They could easily win the time of possession battle while not exposing their defense. Minnesota is also in transition after losing quarterback Tanner Morgan and running back Muhammad Ibrahim from last year’s team. rate me
