Nebraska fans making the trip to Iowa City the day after Thanksgiving may be surprised by what greets them. Iowa fans have embraced the Nebraska-Iowa rivalry far more fervently than Nebraska fans, and the atmosphere inside and outside Kinnick Stadium will be unlike anything NU has seen in some time.
Unfortunately for the spectacle, the matchup is not a good one for the Hawkeyes. James Vandenberg has struggled this year, and is the type of quarterback that Nebraska’s defense tends to stop effectively.
