Between the 2 factors, it's the only 1 that we have any real control over.

We would have beaten MSU last year if we hadn't turned the ball over 5 times! That was due mostly to inexperience. It's somewhat different this year! Armstrong has been under fire and seems to be doing much better. He needs to stay calm. Our Players need to go into this game with a chip on their shoulder. We're NEBRASKA! MSU isn't any different than any other team we play! We need to dominate! Shove it right down their throat! Go Big Red!

Rushing yards won't be easy to come by - but they won't for MS either. Play mistake-free ball and we have a chance.

Haven't seen any team yet to win a game with multiple turn-overs.

Turnovers, usually a team that is +1 over their opponent wins. There is a NFL spreadsheet that is talked about on talk radio that has the exact stats. The gist is 90% of the time the team that doesn't turn the ball over and gains a turn over wins. NU needs no turn overs and MSU could help us out by having 2.

Without a doubt.... The rushing yards don't mater if we have a bunch of turnovers.... (see 2013)

A turnover can cancel the effect of many yards. Let's force turnovers while not allowing our own. Let the effect work for us.

Simplicity, if you can demoralized with turnovers and capitalize on opportunities, then the % chance of win increases.

Do you see the Huskers beating the point spread against Oklahoma this weekend?

OU is susceptible to the long passing game. NU pulls out some stops on offense. D keeps it close. OU by 3.

Spencer is a guy who’s easily rattled (get it?) and figures to throw a few picks if pressured. I still think we lose but Huskers can move the ball through the air and force a few TOs to keep this game within 14. Small chance they even pull out the W

I watched the Tulane game and I think Buffalo is a good team that the D shutdown. Plus I went to school in the 90’s and want us so badly to step up on National tv. We are due!! Skers

Sooner's lose one game mid-season. Why not this one. Hopefully no one showed the Sooner team what Frost and company did to them in '96 and '97. We should play well for 3 quarters then their top guys may take over.

I can’t believe Nebraska fans have fallen so far that they discuss if they can’t beat the spread and not if they can beat OU.

they have talent everywhere. We have a tiny bit of talent. It's a talent landslide.

No way! IL lost big to an unrated Virginia team. Sooners will do whatever they want to do regarding score. Tired of us ‘rebuilding’ when we can’t beat teams that out recruit us every year. Don’t those teams have to rebuild? Simply put we are either terrible recruiters or terrible developers.

Big REd is playing well below the Sooner's level. I just hope they can keep it at the 21 points and not get buried in a ten td avalanche.

They are still playing pretty bad. Offensive line is still not blowing anyone off the ball. Defense is still not getting a pass rush. Secondary is not as good as advertised. Hopefully there will be improvement.

We are not there yet. We put too much pressure on an improving defense. If NU could some how score 40 they might have a chance at the end of the game but....I'll call it 48-27 OU.

Are you concerned about the investigation into the Husker's use of analysts and off-campus workouts?

Lots of teams are doing the exact same thing. Make everyone else accountable before just punishing the Huskers.

It's just a distraction, but it is the last thing we need right now. The timing of this news is extremely suspicious. Focus on taking care of business on the field and this will be ancient history in a month .

Frost is doing everything he can to try to get this program going again. That even means blatantly cheating and trying to cover up his cheating. This isn’t an oopsie, it’s desperation. Same with trying to run away from the OU game. He knows he’s in trouble and he just cost himself his buyout.
