Scouting: Jordan Bohannon hit five three-pointers and scored 25 points when the teams first met in Iowa City back in January, hitting four threes, going 10-for-10 at the free-throw line and scoring 22 points in the second half. The junior guard has had his share of heroics this season, and the ball will likely be in his hands if Sunday's game comes down to the final moments.

Trending: Odds are good that a few records will be broken Sunday. Because the game is a sellout, Nebraska is guaranteed to break its single-season attendance average. James Palmer could break two single-season records, for free-throw attempts (currently tied for first with Kimani Ffriend at 227) and free throws made (Palmer is five behind Jack Moore's record of 184).

Forecasting: It could get a little weird Sunday. Senior day, against Iowa, perhaps the final home game for Tim Miles. The Hawkeyes have lost three in a row and four of five, and needed some serious luck/heroics to beat Northwestern and Rutgers before their current slide. Iowa has lost 15 of its last 20 true road games. It wouldn't be a shock to see Nebraska ending the regular season with victory.
