Nebraska vs Oklahoma this Saturday. Although this game is not one where both teams are highly ranked, I absolutely love it when these two teams play; it brings back great memories of watching them slug it out on Thanksgiving back when I was a kid.

I'm a Sooner fan, but I have nothing but respect for the Nebraska football program and hope that they return to greatness under Pelini.

As a Husker fan, thanks Synopsis. Hopefully we can get back and meet in some Big 12 championship games the years we don't play. I hope we can give you battle this weekend, but you guys clearly have a superior team. I think its great what Oklahoma is doing with the "Game of the Century" teams!

If we win tomorrow, can we still throw oranges on the field like in the 80's! (I know we can't, just brings back some good memories). The wishbone offense, Osborne and Switzer, total respect for each team.

Sure wish I could be in Norman tomorrow, but I'll driving east headed back to OK during the game. Hopefully, I can get it on my satellite radio.

BOOMER SOONER!!!!

The Huskers are one of my favorite college football teams, even though we were rivals. Mainly, it has been because of you guys, the fans of the Huskers.

Knowledgeable of the game, and just good Nebraska folks.

I actually hope this is a good game. Of course I hope Oklahoma wins but I would not mind seeing a tight game at all because I think it would boost the Husker program.

In today's college football, who knows? As in pro football's "any given Sunday," in today's version of college football it's "any given Saturday."

I don't take any game for granted and I believe the Huskers have a SOLID coach in Pelini.

Here's to no injuries and a clean game!

This is one of my favorite games to watch

I went to PSU, but nebraska was always my team

I want them to bring back the option, it was so cool to watch

My favorite play from the series was Eric Crouch catching a pass and running it in, as opposed to just running, or throwing it, what do you call that play?

How come Nebraska and Miami do not have an annual game, I mean they played each other five times for the Championship, has anyone ever done that many?

I was trying to think, has there been such a big rivarly that has (for lack of a better term) gone by the wayside. Texas vs Arkansas maybe?

Enjoy the game today guys, to be honest I kinda wish its wasn't during Texas vs Texas Tech so I could watch that too. Guess I'll just peek at the bottom line during the game.

NJ, Nebraska and Miami actually have a series lined up for 2014-2015!

From my perspective, ouch! Guess that was payback for 97. Can't give up 3 turnovers on your first 5 plays. You got a heck of a team. Good luck the rest of the season!

Everytime I think of the Nebraska-Oklahoma rivalry, I think of 1971. One of the great games ever, Nebraska 35, Oklahoma 31. And the final college poll; 1. Nebraska 2. Oklahoma 3. Colorado, and Iowa State finished in the top 15 as well with a 7-3 record. That's domination!

Yeah, me too. Husker fans are classy folks. I really think Coach Osborne should be named the coach of the century. He was the Tom Landry of college football.
