I would not overlook Texass. I have no doubt they'll play tougher for this game than any thus far....maybe any the rest of their season. Keep in mind they are coming off 2 losses. They "really" don't want to go to 3 losses. The Huskers haven't faced a Defense ranked higher than 63rd. And Texas has a few really, really fast guys on their side that really haven't seen much playing time yet.

Of course, many of the same things can be said for the Huskers as well. This game....the BigXII Champ game last year....has been the rallying cry for this year. "Finish." I'd love to be in the locker room to hear Bo's pregame speech.

The one thing the Huskers cannot do is buy into all the hype about themselves....about Martinez. They can't let up for a minute.

This game could easily go either way.

Huskers 38
UT 24

Holy crap. . I was wayyy wrong. The Huskers looked terrible. They embarrassed themselves on national TV. What a pathetic performance. The Huskers seem to have 2 teams. Team one is a national championship contender. Team two is doesn't even deserve to be top 25. At least this doesn't ruin their chances of winning the north division.

Obviously, there were a myriad of factors in their poor performance. But, it begins with Mack Brown's ability to develop game plans that exploit the opponents weakness, at least in their history of playing Nebraska. If you have an unbalanced offense, dependent upon a talented, but inexperienced, Freshman rushing quarterback, the opponent's defense has an advantage.
Then when you are forced to pass, and many of Nebraska's passes were accurate, you have a receiving core that makes mistakes.

Between dropped balls, fumbles, penalties, and a few bad referee calls, this was a painful game to watch. I hope the coaches learned more from this experience than they did from playing the earlier "powder-puff" (sans K-State) schedule.

Not to be an arm chair quarterback but... that's what coaches and teams do between Sunday and Friday, develop schemes and exploitations of opponents. Good teams and coaches win off those developments. In a word, it's called preparation.

As far as missed passes, penalties, general malaise... that's about what happened to Texas in the UCLA game. But that's how freshmen get better. The first rule in baseball is 'beginners use two hands.'

Both teams have failed their potentials on more than one occasion... but we still love them.

So. . .moving on. Predictions for Nebraska @ Oklahoma St.

Nebraska shows up for this one having extracted their heads from their posteriors. Oklahoma St. tries to exploit the Husker secondary and has some luck but also throw a couple of interceptions.

Nebraska wins 35-14.

The Huskers seem to play much better on the road that at home...which is just mindboggling. It'll likely be a high scoring game. OKSt has a pretty scary offense.

Nebraska 42 - 31
