NU Victory!

Nebraska beat their first non-conference team since 2001. What an exciting game to be at. What a crowd and what a game!!!

My prediction was 34-31 and the final was 35-32. I had some keys to what it would take for us to win.

They were as follows:

1. Ozigbo needed to run 25 times for 175 yards. He ran 21 times for 95 yards.
2. Tommy Armstrong Jr would need to have no interceptions. He threw no interceptions.
3. Cethan Carter would need five receptions for 80 yards. He had five receptions for 48 yards.
4. No blocked punts and Pierson-El would need to run one punt back for 40 plus yards. He had a 45 yard punt return.
5. Royce Freeman would need to be held to under 100 yards. He had five attempts for 31 yards as he was injured early in the game.

Nebraska Prediction

Will Nebraska continue to win the turnover war? They are a plus eight in turnovers and lead the nation in this stat.  If we get three or more turnovers we win the game.

Can Nebraska run on Oregon? I think this is a key to a Nebraska win. They can keep Oregon off the field. If we can run Ozigbo 25 times for 175 yards plus, we win.

How will Tommy Armstrong do today? He is better at the run but can pass on the run too. He is good but no dumb mistakes today. If Armstrong has no interceptions, we win.

Can Cethan Carter become part of the game today? He is very talented. I think if he catches five balls for 80 yards and a TD Nebraska wins.

Can the punt return and punting teams do a much better job today? No blocked punts today and if Pierson-El breaks one punt return for over 40 yards Nebraska wins.

If Nebraska holds Freeman the Oregon running back to 100 yards or less Nebraska wins.

If there is a lot of running it could keep the score down some.

Nebraska 34
Oregon 31
