Nebraska Prediction!

I have tried to get a feeling for this all day! I've went back and forth.

I think we will need to hold Corey Clement to under 100 yards today. That will be tough but it is possible. The defensive line seems to keep improving and the Wisconsin quarterbacks are great so if we play run defense well anything can happen.

Nebraska needs to get 350 plus yards on offense and keep turnovers to under two.

But the deciding factor for my prediction is Nebraska's offensive line. Injuries have hurt their performance running lately and we have to be able to run. That scares me.

Hope I am wrong but
Wisconsin 17
Nebraska 15

Go Big Red!!

Sport Shorts!

NU won again!  I am really concerned about our offensive line. We could not run the ball at all until the 4th quarter. We were lucky to get a yard at times. I have a bunch of injuries and I am not sure if some of the reserves would be doing better than the hurt players. The coaches know best. Our defense overall played pretty good. Very good at times!

What's with the scores of some of these games?  Oklahoma 66 Texas Tech 59,  Rice 65 Prairie View 44, Utah 52 UCLA 45. Lots of scoring! The Big 10 seems to have some lower scoring games with some pretty good defense.

Nebraska moves to No. 7 in the polls. The last two undefeated teams in the Big 10 are Michigan and Nebraska.

Go Cubs!!

Wisconsin is No. 11.

I really don't like fantasy football today.  What a disaster!

Nebraska Prediction!

I am really concerned with the injuries that we have right now. With Westercamp and Cethan carter out, you are talking maybe two of our three biggest threats on offense. Tommy Armstrong Jr is the third. He isn't 100%. With Knevel and possibly Gates out as offensive tackles this will put ore pressure on Armstrong to scramble even more. How many sacks would the opposing teams have if we didn't have a quarterback that can run?? So in the offense line, we only have two original starters left and we are hurting in depth really bad.

What happens if we have another lineman go down or Armstrong twist his ankle to where he can't play?  Not good. Nebraska has to have a game plan that will give us the least chance to get more injuries.

The good news is the defense looks as solid as we have had it in a long time. The defensive line is still giving up too much on the run but considering we lost our four top linemen from last year well they are doing exceptional.

David Blough, their quarterback, killed us last year. Can we contain him this year? We have trouble with that but we should do a much better job this year.We have to contain him to win. Keep him under 75-80 yards rushing.

Purdue has lost their coach. Interim head coach Gerad Parker is in charge today.Will this fire up the players or go the other way. I guess we will find that out.

Last week we were terrible on third down. We were 5-17. That HAS to get better this week.

I thin we can score three or four touchdowns considering no more injuries and we can kick a couple of field goals. So I will go with 31 points for Nebraska. I am going to be optimistic that we can hold them to 14 points.

Nebraska 31
Purdue  14

Nebraska Prediction

Will Nebraska be ready today or do they feel they have already won the game? I don't think so because last year has to be on their mind. What's the key to NU winning?

In the last tw games NU is giving up 6.2 yards per carry from the opposing team. They have alost 500 yards the past two games. Will this continue today? If it does this could be a close game.

If Nebraska holds Illinois to 150 yards or less rushing, NU wins.

If NU goes for 300 yards rushing we win today.

If NU has no injuries in the offensive line today, NU wins. We are pretty solid with our starters but we are lacking some depth right now. Gerald Foster is out for the year and Tanner Farmer is out for this game. It looks like we may have to burn a redshirt if we have an injury.

If NU has four sacks or more today, NU wins.

Nebraska 37
Illinois 14
