The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen huge returns. Over the past four-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of over $4,300 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. The model enters Week 7 of the 2019 season on a strong run, going 68-42 on its top-rated college football picks. It also called Georgia (-27.5) covering against Tennessee and California (+21) easily staying within the spread against Oregon last week. Anybody who has been following it is way up.

Now, it has simulated Minnesota vs. Nebraska 10,000 times and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning over, and it also says one side of the spread hits in well over 50 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.

Minnesota ran circles around Illinois last week, thumping the visiting Illini 40-17. The Golden Gophers outgained Illinois 332-91 on the ground and 487-248 overall. RB Rodney Smith rushed for 211 yards on 24 carries and a touchdown, with backfield mate Shannon Brooks gaining 111 yards on 16 carries and a TD. QB Tanner Morgan threw for just 155 yards on 9-of-17 passing, but tossed three touchdowns.

Nebraska rebounded from a lopsided loss to Ohio State by squeaking past Northwestern 13-10 last week. Lane McCallum kicked a 24-yard, game-winning field goal as time expired to earn the victory. Backup QB Noah Vedral took over for the injured Adrian Martinez late in the third quarter to engineer the final drive. Martinez injured his knee in the game, but practiced this week and is expected to play against Minnesota.

Two defensive stats to consider for this game: The Golden Gophers have six interceptions, good for 16th in the the nation. But the Cornhuskers are even better, recording seven picks that are good for 10th in the the nation.
