The Nebraska Cornhuskers have been one of the worst Power 5 teams all college basketball season, and with three games left on their regular season schedule, they're playing for nothing but pride. Today, they take on the Penn State Nittany Lions, who are coming off a big 67-60 win over Northwestern as they attempt to get as high of a seed as possible in the upccoming Big 10 tournament.

This will serve as the only regular season meeting between these two teams this season.

Nebraska vs. Penn State Prediction and Pick

Much like the Indiana vs. Minnesota game today, there's a massive discrepancy in the rebounding ability of both teams in this game. The Cornhuskers rank 347th in the country in rebounding percentage, which is the 12th worst mark amongst all division one teams. Nebraska grabs just 44.9% of available rebounds.

Penn State will have a massive advantage in that area, as the Nittany Lions are 44th in rebounding percentage grabbing 53.2% of boards. They've gotten even better at this recently, as they've grabbing 57.7% of rebounds over their last three games, which is the eighth best mark in the country over that span.

Not only are they abysmal at rebounding, but Nebraska also ranks 306th in defensive efficiency. They are truly one of the worst teams in the Power 5 conferences.

It's Penn State or nothing today.
